(ECNS)--A hand-painted "Chinese-character" calendar made by pupils in Chengdu, Sichuan Province has garnered much attention.

A local teacher at Chengdu Experimental Primary School instructs students in ancient Chinese character formation, including pictograms, associative compounds and phonograms.

The students made a unique "Chinese-character calendar" under the teacher's guidance.

Each calendar page features a comparison between the simplified and ancient form of a Chinese character, accompanied by stroke order.

The back of each displays an oracle-bone inscription of each character.

Some Chinese characters are related to the 24 solar terms or Chinese zodiac.

Pre-sold online, some overseas schools have already placed orders for the calendar.

Income generated from sales will be donated to kids in impoverished areas.
