    Egor Lobusov offered us to participate in the calligraphy-project "Idiot".
    Participating calligraphers from different countries and we are pleased to have joined the "idiocy" :)

    Remind you, that the concept of an "idiot" laid back in ancient Greece. From Wikipedia:

    An idiot in Athenian democracy was someone who was characterized by self-centeredness and concerned almost exclusively with private — as opposed to public — affairs. Idiocy was the natural state of ignorance into which all persons were born and its opposite, citizenship, was effected through formalized education. In Athenian democracy, idiots were born and citizens were made through education (although citizenship was also largely hereditary). "Idiot" originally referred to "layman, person lacking professional skill", "person so mentally deficient as to be incapable of ordinary reasoning". Declining to take part in public life, such as democratic government of the polis (city state), was considered dishonorable. "Idiots" were seen as having bad judgment in public and political matters.
