At Hau Wong temple in Hong Kong’s Kowloon there is another one-stroke calligraphy inscribed on a wall. This one is the Chinese character for “goose” and is a reference to the famous calligrapher, Yishao (Wang Xizhi), whose is thought to have discovered how to move his wrist while writing by observing how geese moved their necks.
