elegant calligraphy

Tokyo friend Keiko sent this example of calligraphy from the Heian Period. The card commemorates the 1000th anniversary of the Tale of Genji.

Wonderful! Have you read Tale of the Genji? I did (partly, I must admit ;) and feel I recognize elements of it in other books sometimes (i.e. Haruki Murakami, David Mitchell).
