Large Scroll for House Decor

 This scroll is written for a phrase of Pascal. I know calligraphy purists will poo poo the punctuation...however as this is a western theme we thought it best to write as such for this particular case.

The phrase reads in English. "Man is but a reed, the most feeble thing in nature, but he is a thinking reed...All our dignity consists then in thought." It witten in the Gyousho style.

The scroll is done in a beautiful taupe partial silk. The Jikusaki is a beautifully carved rosewood with a bone insert.
