With more than 40,000 signs, it can't be anything else than an art act to write which needs lots of training. Beautiful shot.

This is a fascinating, really original shot. I'm gradually catching up with EPZ after a week away, there's been some good stuff posted!

How fascinating!!
I've never seen an adult doing this before.
The children at school have buckets of water and brushes to "paint" the playground and the fences outside when they play, but they would need a few more handwriting lessons to get to this standard!!!
