More Description

Through the mythical tale of the young scholar Chu Shui Hu, and more than 60 lyrical calligraphic paintings, "Ancient Wisdom I" is a book for all who yearn for deeper understanding. Hu's patron, Lord Xi Er Gong, challenges him to abandon his headstrong ways and live the ascetic monastic life of the calligrapher, poet and scholar. He is ordered to master this most demanding artistic discipline and compose profound scrolls that will bring accolades to the House of Xi Er Gong. When he rebels, Xi admonishes him. "You have yet to learn the great secret of life. Without it, the doors to heaven remain eternally sealed." Thus begins Hu's struggle to gain wisdom and unlock the power of the secret Chi. "Ancient Wisdom I" is a coming-of-age tale for all times.
