Calligraphy: »The Enso circle is one of the most popular drawings in Japanese calligraphy. It symbolises enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe and the void, but can also symbolise the Japanese aesthetic itself. (…) In Zen Buddhism, the painting of Ensō represents the moment in which consciousness is free and body and mind are not restricted in their creative process. It is common to apply ink to tissue or rice paper with a brush in one movement. Once the Ensō is drawn, one can not change it: the Ensō shows the state of the mind at the moment of the creation «.
Here the Ensō is attached to the wall of a meditation hall in the Zen monastery Buchenberg – http://zen-kloster.de .
