Embassador writes in coleography the character He Ping (peace)

A Xinhua photographer has taken on the task to ask foreign Ambassadors in Beijing to write in calligraphy the characters "He Ping", or peace .

Photos from this event will be shown on the Travel Television, hopefully reflecting the growing international cooperation for peace and coopertation. The work of the Ambassadors will also be displayed in a photo exhibition in Beijing.

The idea for this project came when the artist Yang Jianhong was teaching the grandmother of Barack Obama Precedent of America to write these two characters. Yang Jianhong visited the Embassy last week when these pictures were taken.
