And what a great choice of a calligrapher! We have so much to learn just from the "old masters" examining their form and rhythm.

"Les courbes ne sont pas nettes !" qu'il dit ! Je ne sais pas avec quoi vous faites ces traits (pinceau ou grosse plume ?) mais un léger tremblement est inévitable chez tout être humain, non ? :)
Ceci dit, c'est magnifique, et à défaut de ces "courbes pas nettes" on peut admirer la composition ! :heart:

It says: "O Mensch bedenke das Ende, so wirst du nimmermehr Übles tun."
Translated it would be something like "Oh human remember the end so you will never do something evil again"

Woah, this is really awesome, you did a really great job o___o
And I hate myself for not being able to read this, I'm German and I at least have read a book about the old calligraphy and still I was not able to read this xD
But yes, very well done :love:
