Associate Professor Yue Hongji presented his first-hand knowledge of the calligraphy of the Northern Dynasty statue inscriptions, which he had studied for more than ten years.He considered Wei Tablet to be a style of calligraphy, not asystemof calligraphy.Which isa dynastic style and concept of calligraphy, and a fusion of calligraphy.The calligraphic style of “Wei Tablet”reveals the tension of national culture and the process of cultural change, reflecting a spirit of cultural pluralism and tolerance. Although calligraphy is a small path, it is the soul of the nation. In the late Qing Dynasty, Yang Shoujing brought some of theWei Tablettoppings to Japan, which had a transformative effect on the Japanese calligraphy community and created the "phenomenonofYang Shoujing" in Japan.
