This carved ideogram contains some of the richest and best-known traditions of Chinese graphic art: the art of the seal, calligraphy, folkloric paper decoupage and so on. Hanging on the wall, hanging from the ceiling or placed against the glass against the light, this simple decorative object wants to bring you an aura of exotic poetry, benevolence and a positive wish.
The ideogram 美 [měi] is composed of 羊 [yáng] sheep and 大 [gives] large. In ancient times, the Chinese people considered sheep to be graceful, meek, meek, passive animals, or an example of the grace of nature. The lower part of the pictogram also means an adult, mature and strong person. Hence the meaning of beauty is a graceful, large and mature appearance.
