Japanese - Vietnamese: Beauty is a vibe

The renown Vietnamese calligrapher Dr, Cung Khac Luoc was composing his work in the Vietnamese traditional pottery vase in Bat Trang where pottery is produced. His idea is the combination of art between Vietnamese and Japanese. He was writing Haiku poem (typical Japanese poem) and also drawing his idea about the poem in the vase. His hand-writing is really famous in Vietnamese because of its beauty and its meaning. The poem is about the beauty of the moon and the earth. And its hidden meaning is about the relationship between humans. Its not only about love but also about compassion.
