Hypatia was a Greek Neoplatonist philosopher in Roman Alexandria.  She was violently dragged through the streets and murdered by a mob of anti-pagan zealots.

The Asian calligraphy's brush must be held vertically, inclining neither sideways nor toward one self. To achieve best ergonomics, keep the inside of palm round as if holding a small egg.

The technique is called round stroke or upright stroke.

I find it funny that the only two Canovas present on Pinterest are this one (Cupid & Psyche) and a naked Pauline Bonaparte, sister of Napoleon. I was the jerk who told a museum that they had mislabeled a minor Canova piece in their exhibit.
