Slender Gold

Slender Gold is the name of a Chinese Calligraphy style.
The painting and the calligraphy in Slender gold style are by the Song Emperor Hui Zong.

Note the beautiful balance of thick and thin strokes.

If only Hui zong had been as great a statesman and ruler as he was artist!

I wonder if any typographers have used Slender Gold as the basis for a font design yet?
