In ancient China, ink rubbing developed as a practical method of reproducing multiple copies of texts. Reflecting a minimalist style, ‘rubbings’ of famous calligraphy steles are always welcome additions to the collections of calligraphy lovers and of those who simply love interesting and beautiful things. An FYI for those who aren’t familiar – a stele is a stone on which text or images are inscribed, carved, or painted. Take home your own piece of history with ink rubbing from an ancient stele at the Xi’an Stele Forest, then have it framed and mounted on a wall at home.
