Bee

China
Bee Vertical Wall Scroll

碧 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Bee.

This has nothing to do with the insect bee. The meaning of the character is actually "fresh and green."

Bee

Japan bii
Bee Vertical Wall Scroll

ビー is the name Bee written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).

This has nothing to do with the insect bee.


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Beekeeping / Apiculture

Beekeeping / Apiculture Vertical Wall Scroll

養蜂 is the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean title for beekeeping, to raise bees, or apiculture.

A nice gift for an avid bee keeper.

Queen Bee

Japan jooubachi
Queen Bee Vertical Wall Scroll

女王蜂 is the Japanese title for "Queen Bee," as in queen of a bee hive.

Queen Bee

I added this because a customer got confused about queens.

In Chinese, they do not use the same title of queen for bees as they do for humans. 蜂王 is the proper title for the queen bee of a hive.

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.

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.
