2018 is known as the year of the dog, the Earth Dog Year or Wu Xu (戊戌) 무술년. It is associated with the Earthly Branch symbol 戌 (xū). The calendar system is based on the combination of the 10 heavenly stems over the 12 Zodiac Signs. Wu Xu (戊戌) ends on 4th Feb 2019.
This wooden rubber stamp features 1 Chinese/Japanese character of 戌 (Dog/Year of the Dog) in Chinese Calligraphy and are stylised into a rectilinear geometry. The geometrical style developed from the needs to adapt Chinese characters to block seals and stamps for official purposes in the past.
This rubber stamp would be great for adorning your journal pages, adding personalised touch to outgoings or any projects. It would also make a unique gift for people who are looking for something different.
Each piece of rubber stamps is assembled by hand with care and attention to details. We hope this unique creation will add some sparks in your everyday life.
There are two patterns - Yin, where the word comes out in white (dark background); Yang, where the character comes out in red (empty background).

We believe that hand-written form has no equivalent in computer fonts.
Chinese calligraphy is a visual art. It is long considered as the most sublime art form in China, is like a carefully choreographed dance—precision, balance, poetry, rhythm... it's all there in perfect harmony (Asia Art Museum, 2012).
Calligraphers express their character through their characters, which is a culture devoted to the power of the words. Distinct from mere writing, we believe that these handwriting should continue to be valued, collected, and treated as art.
We believe that hand-written form has no equivalent in computer fonts. These rubber stamps are designed based on the Chinese calligraphy written by a full-time young Malaysian calligrapher, Kweh who is passionate to achieve comprehensive creation and development with Chinese Calligraphy, integrating the culture into media, business, design and education.
