Shu's Advanced Formula Cleansing Oil: Mystery Solved!

(The Curator is very busy/tired...Couture Monday will return next week.)

A few weeks ago I posted about Shu Uemura's latest cleansing oil, the Advanced Formula, which came with an abstract design on the bottle.  I didn't know when it would be hitting the U.S. and surmised that this wasn't an artist collaboration since there was no mention of an outside artist on the bottle or box.   This morning though I received an e-mail from the company announcing the U.S. release of this oil and they revealed what that design is - it's calligraphy from Mr. Uemura himself!  Here's my picture again:

Silly me, it should have dawned on me that it was calligraphy, and calligraphy from Shu himself - that's very fitting.  But trained in Western art that I am, I thought it had more of an abstract expressionist feel to it.  In any case, I'm happy to find out what it was!
