Artist creating Chinese sugar painting a folk art in Tianjing.MOV

I saw this folk artist producing sugar paintings with liquid sugar along the streets in Tian Jing. I was able to video tape the beginning to end of this specific painting. The painter uses the brown sugar as the raw material, the bronze spoon and a shovel as the tool, and the slab of marble as the “paper”. Sugar painting originated from the Ming Dynasty when sugar animals and figures were made in molds as part of a sacrifice in religious rituals. In the Qing Dynasty, sugar painting gained more popularity. This particular artist was creating paintings with the 12 zodiac animals.

Have all eastern asian forms of calligraphy been developed from Chinese calligraphy?

I’m researching Eastern Asian calligraphy for an art essay and I don’t know how to begin. Have all eastern asian calligraphic styles evolved from the origins of Chinese Calligraphy in the Shang Dynasty?

If you’re researching, then likely you’ve already read the Wiki article:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_character

Which indeed indicates the first organized use dating to this period.. But there are some indications of earlier usage.
There are several citations for the article which may give your further research materials.
