Beloved Daughter

Japan ai jou
Beloved Daughter

愛嬢 means "beloved daughter" in Japanese Kanji.


Japan gu jo

愚女 is a humble title for "daughter" in Japanese. If you literally define each character, you get "silly girl" or "foolish woman."

First Born Daughter

China zhǎng
Japan choujo
First Born Daughter

長女 is a Chinese, old Korean Hanja, and Japanese Kanji title for eldest daughter or first born daughter.

This can also be a given name "Osame" in Japanese.

Father and Daughter

Father and Daughter

父女 is a title for "father and daughter" in Chinese.

Note: 父女 is an unusual word for a calligraphy wall scroll.

Father and Daughter

Japan chichi musume
Father and Daughter

父娘 is a title for "father and daughter" in Japanese Kanji.

God Daughter

China jiào nǚ
God Daughter

教女 is the title for a female child in which you have a sworn duty to raise, should the girl's parents die. The second character specifically designates that we are talking about a female child, thus the title God Daughter.

See Also:  Family

Grand Daughter

Japan mago musume
Grand Daughter

孫娘 is granddaughter in Japanese Kanji.

See Also:  Family

Mother and Daughter

China mǔ nǚ
Mother and Daughter

This simply means "mother and daughter" kind of as a unit, or as if mother and daughter are a whole together.

This is an unusual selection for a calligraphy wall scroll, and can be read many different ways. Your native Asian friends might wonder what you are trying to say. They might even read it as meaning "a mother and daughter without a dad."

This entry was added to our database for a customer's special request. It has the same meaning in Chinese Characters and Korean Hanja.

See Also:  Mother and Son

Mother and Daughter

Japan haha musume
Mother and Daughter

This simply means "mother and daughter" in Japanese Kanji.

This is an unusual selection for a calligraphy wall scroll, and can be read many different ways. Your native Japanese friends might wonder what you are trying to say.

Note: This will not make sense in Chinese.

See Also:  Mother and Son


China bǎo bao

寶寶 is how Chinese people express "baby."

The word is composed of the same character twice, and therefore literally means "double precious" or "double treasure."

This would be a nice wall scroll to put either inside or by the door of your baby's room (not on the door, as wall scrolls swing around wildly when hung on doors that open and close a lot).


Japan nyuu ji

This a common two-Kanji way to write "baby" in Japanese. This can also be translated as "infant" or "suckling baby."


Japan akan bou

This one way that Japanese people express "baby."

Beauty / Beautiful / Handsome

China měi
Japan bi
Beauty / Beautiful / Handsome

This word is often used to describe the beauty of a woman. However, when applied to a man, it can mean handsome. It's also the first character in the word for "beauty salon" which you will see all over China and Japan.

This can be used as the given name for a girl (spell it or say it as "Mei" or "May").

For a bit of trivia: The title for the "USA" in Chinese is "Mei Guo" which literally means "Beautiful Country." This name was bestowed at a time before Chairman Mao came to power and decided that China didn't like the USA anymore (even though we fought together against the Japanese in WWII). But these days, Chinese people love Americans (but have distaste for American politics and policy). But I digress...

This is also how "Beautiful" is written in Japanese Kanji and Korean Hanja. This character can also mean: very satisfactory; good; to be pleased with oneself; abbreviation for the USA; fine; handsome; admirable; madhura; sweet; pleasant.

Beautiful Girl

China měi lì de gū niang
Beautiful Girl

美麗的姑娘 is the best way to express "beautiful girl" in Chinese.

See Also:  Beautiful Woman | Beauty

Beautiful Princess

China měi lì de gōng zhǔ
Beautiful Princess

美麗的公主 is how to write beautiful princess in Chinese. The first two characters mean feminine beauty, or rather a way to say beautiful that only applies to women. The middle character is just a connecting character. The last two characters mean princess.

See Also:  Queen

Beautiful Woman

China měi lì de nǚ rén
Beautiful Woman

美麗的女人 is the best and most polite way to express "beautiful woman" in Chinese.

Note: Some people may like the simple 2-character 美女 way to express this but there are some bad connotations with that, so better to stay with this longer and more respectful title.

See Also:  Beautiful Girl | Beauty

Beauty / Beautiful Princess

China yuàn
Japan hime / haru
Beauty / Beautiful Princess

This means, a beauty; beautiful (woman); princess; young lady of noble birth; girl; small & lovely.

This is used a bit more commonly in Chinese than Japanese.

Note: This can be the female given name "Hime" in Japanese.


China bàn
Japan kizuna

This Kanji represents a bond, as in the bond between mother and daughter, father and son, family ties, or a family bond.

This is the kind of character that says, no matter what happens (difficult times), we have this bond that cannot be broken.

If you go to the Japanese dictionary, the definition is: bonds (between people); (emotional) ties; relationship; connection; link; tether; fetters.

Read this before ordering...
This Kanji is best if your audience is Japanese. While this is also a Chinese character, it has a completely different meaning in Chinese (it means to hinder or stumble in Chinese). It's a very rare character in Korean Hanja but does mean bond in Korean (used in Korean words for certain kinds of glue and sticking plaster).

Girl Power / Woman Power

China nǚ lì
Japan onna ryoku / me riki
Girl Power / Woman Power

This can be read as "girl power," "woman power," or "female strength."

This is kind of a strange or unofficial title in Chinese and Japanese. At least, it's not common for a wall scroll.

This should be "onna ryoku" in Japanese but I found some who suggest it should be "me riki."

Jinni / Golden Girl

China jīn nī
Jinni / Golden Girl

金妮 is a transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Jinni.

金妮 means, "golden girl," or "girl of gold" in Chinese.

金妮 is the special name I made up and chose for my third daughter. There is also another, more common way to transliterate this name which is 吉尼 instead of 金妮.

Mother and Son

China mǔ zǐ
Japan bo shi
Mother and Son

This simply means "mother and son," or the essence of the relationship and bond between mother and son.

This is really a single word that expresses this idea (showing how important or significant this bond is).

This is not the most common choice for a wall scroll, it is acceptable if you feel this term is important to you.

Pearl in the Palm

China zhǎng shàng míng zhū
Pearl in the Palm

This Chinese proverb literally means, "a pearl in the palm."

Figuratively, this is used to describe, or as a title for, a beloved person. This can especially apply to a daughter.


Japan oujo

王女 is a Japanese title that means princess.

Strong Woman

China nǚ qiáng rén
Strong Woman

女強人 is the best way to say "strong woman" or "strong and independent woman" in Chinese.

Grammar in China is a bit different, so these three characters literally read as "female strength person" or "woman strong person." This might sound funny in English but this is a natural-sounding title in Chinese.

Bad Girl

Japan furyoushoujo
Bad Girl

This Japanese word means bad girl or female juvenile delinquent.

It's an unusual choice for calligraphy.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
