Calligraphy for “Earth”

I had an opportunity to attend an exhibition of calligraphy at the Gyeongbok Gung Station in Seoul last month that featured work by Korean, Chinese and Japanese artists. One Japanese woman produced this remarkable piece which features a version of the characters for “Earth” (地球)in which that latter one,  球, is shaped like the Earth. She told me that it was based on a Zhuan script version (篆書)version. I am afraid that I did not get her name. But here is a photograph.
