Chinese / Japanese Calligraphy Scroll
This Chinese character and Japanese Kanji means peace or the state of being kind to all people in your life. It's also used to mean harmony.
Mandarin: hé (Note: This "he" is not English, so the "e" vowel sound is more like the "u" in the English word "up")
Korean: 화 (hwa)
Hopefully hanging this on your wall will remind you to be at peace in your life, and to show kindness to everyone.
Some people will also associate the idea of harmony with this character, in addition to it's meaning of "peace"
The would make a great gift for a peace-loving family member or friend.
See our PEACE and HARMONY custom Japanese Kanji and Chinese character wall scrolls page for more custom Japanese Kanji calligraphy options.
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".
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).
