1960s The Collection of Phrases


A set of 32 pages, similar to the ‘Collection of Single Characters’ but now the characters are grouped into phrases. These phrases are of auspicious sayings, idioms, Buddhist sayings or parts of poems. Using the example of ‘wan xiang geng xin’ or ‘everything takes a new look’, is similar to examples in Item1 but with four characters forming a phrase. The character ‘xiang’ can mean shape, form, image or elephant, hence the pictographs of an elephant are present.

This collection of phrases was likely done in the 1960's to early1970's.
