Zen / Chan / Meditation

Chinese / Japanese Kanji / old Korean Hanja Calligraphy Wall Scroll

This is the character that is Romanized and pronounced "Zen" in Japanese. This character actually means "meditation" and is often associated with a practice (and sect) of "Meditation Buddhism" or "Zen Buddhism". This character and concept originally came from China, where this character is Romanized and pronounced "Chan".

The form written on this wall scroll is the modern Japanese form. Here's the other ways it's often written:

禪 ancient Japanese Zen / Chinese Chan
Original Chinese and old Japanese.

禅 modern Chinese Chan
Chinese version written in an alternate or "shorthand" form. This form is now the official Simplified Chinese version, but this form has existed for over a thousand years.

About the artist:

This calligraphy was created by Li Dan-Qing of Beijing. He's an older gentleman who has been involved with the art community of China, all of his life. Now in retirement, he creates calligraphy for us for sort of "hobby income".


About the materials and construction of this wall scroll:

The calligraphy was done using black Chinese ink on xuan paper (known incorrectly in the west as "rice paper"). The raw artwork was then taken to our Wall Scroll Workshop where it was laminated to more sheets of xuan paper, and built into a beautiful silk brocade wall scroll. Except for the use of a lathe to turn the wooden knobs, this wall scroll is virutally 100% handmade from start to finish (even the paper is made by hand).
