“The ultimate perfection of a calligraphic objet d’art is when the eyes can hear it, the ears can see it, the right hand jerks from “forte” to “piano” following the progress of the line; the mystery is unveiled, the moment is perpetuated. The door of the world of perfection is opening unobtrusively, but a few are allowed inside”.
