Blessings and Protection

Japan shukufuku to hogo
Blessings and Protection Wall Scroll

祝福と保護 means, "blessings and protection," in Japanese.

Blessings and Protection

China bǎo yòu
Blessings and Protection Wall Scroll

保佑 / 保祐 is the more religious and sometimes superstitious word for protection in Chinese. It's sort of a blessing of protection, and is often translated as "bless and protect," "blessing," or "to bless."

This would be used the protection or blessing that a deity (such as God) would bestow upon you. It is not religion-specific in the same way that a language itself cannot be specific to any religion.


祐Note: Sometimes the second character is written in the form shown to the right. Let us know if you have a preference when you place your order.

Blessings and Good Wishes

China zhù fú
Japan shukufuku
Blessings and Good Wishes Wall Scroll

祝福 is a nice way to give good wishes to someone. It can be a general blessing, or used to congratulate someone for a special occasion or graduation.

This has a good meaning in Japanese but more appropriate when expressed orally. 祝福 is not a natural selection for a wall scroll if your audience is Japanese.

Blessings on this Home

China wǔ fú lín mén
Blessings on this Home Wall Scroll

This literally means, "five good-fortunes arrive [at the] door." It is understood to mean, "may the five blessings descend upon this home."

These blessing are known in ancient China to be: longevity, wealth, health, virtue, and a natural death (living to old age). 五福臨門 is one of several auspicious sayings you might hear during Chinese New Years.

God Bless You / May God Protect You

China shàng dì bǎo yòu
God Bless You / May God Protect You Wall Scroll

上帝保佑 is a blessing exchanged between Chinese Christians.

The first two characters literally mean God (The God of Zion). The second two characters express the idea of giving protection. Another way to translate this is "May God protect you."

Divine Blessing

China bì yòu
Divine Blessing Wall Scroll

庇佑 / 庇祐 is a Chinese way to say "divine blessing."

This can also mean: to bless; to protect; divine protection.

Also written as 庇祐 (variant second character).

Grace of God / Divine Blessing

Japan shin kei
Grace of God / Divine Blessing Wall Scroll

This can be translated as, "God's Blessing," "Blessed by God," or "Divine Blessing" in Japanese Kanji.

Pursuit of Happiness

China zhuī xún xìng fú
Pursuit of Happiness Wall Scroll

The first two characters mean "to pursue," "to track down," or "to search for."

The last two mean happiness, happy, or blessed.

追尋幸福 is the best way to translate the English phrase "pursuit of happiness" into Chinese.

Happiness

China xìng fú
Japan koufuku
Happiness Wall Scroll

幸福 is a general state of "happiness" which can also be translated as truly-blessed, welfare, well-being, or fortunate.

God Bless You
God Be With You

Japan kami sa ma ga mamo ru you ni
God Bless You / God Be With You Wall Scroll

神さまが守るように is about as close as you can get to, "God Bless You" in Japanese.

This literally means, "[May] God Protect [You]." It can also mean, "God is Always With You," as the word in this phrase that means "protect" can also mean to follow or be with. In fact, the Japanese dictionary entry for that word reads like this: to protect; to guard; to defend; to keep (i.e. a promise); to abide; to observe; to follow.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Blessed by Heaven

Japan ten kei
Blessed by Heaven Wall Scroll

天恵 means "Heaven's Blessing," "Blessings from Heaven," or "Blessed by Heaven" in Japanese Kanji.

Depending on the context in which this is used, it can also mean, "gift of nature," or even, "natural resources" (as in Heaven or God bestowed things like oil, iron, gold, and other natural resources upon mankind).

Bless this House

Japan kono-ka ni shukufuku o
Bless this House Wall Scroll

この家に祝福を means, "Bless this house" or "Bless this home," in Japanese.

Some may also translate this as, "Bless this family," since the Kanji for home can also mean family.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

God Bless You

Japan odaijini
God Bless You Wall Scroll

お大事に means, "God bless you" in Japanese. It can also mean, "take care of yourself," or "get well soon." It's not always associated with a religious meaning.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Grace from Heaven / Grace from God

China tiān ēn
Grace from Heaven / Grace from God Wall Scroll

天恩 is the deepest way to say "Heaven's Grace" or "God's Grace" in Chinese.

The first character means Heaven or sky (referring in this case to the domain of God).
The second character means grace, blessings, benevolence, favor/favour, acts of kindness, merits, or beneficial influence.

This title can also be defined as:
Blessings of Heaven, Favor of the Emperor, Divination's luckiest day, or blessings of nature. Note: When you see "Emperor" above, keep in mind that the Emperor, like the Pope is theoretically chosen by God, or seen as an emissary or conduit of God in ancient Asian culture. It would only be read that way in a certain context such as, "The Emperor, in his mercy, bestowed upon him Heaven's Grace and the prisoner was set free."


Note: Technically, this is a Japanese word too (pronounced "ten-on") but it's rarely used in Japan anymore. Therefore, this title is best if your audience is Chinese.

Grace from Heaven
Grace from God

Japan kami no on kei
Grace from Heaven / Grace from God Wall Scroll

神の恩恵 means God's Grace in Japanese.

The first two characters act to create a word that means "divine," "God's," or "The Spirit's."

The last two Kanji mean grace, favor/favour, blessing, or benefit.

Grace

China ēn
Japan on
Grace Wall Scroll

恩 is often translated as "kind act from above," as in "The Grace of God." This doesn't necessarily have to come from God. It could be a favor paid to you, or help that you received (or gave). Of course, you can decide for yourself whether the grace or favor given to you by a friend is actually a gift from God.

Other possible translations of this character:
Favor / favour, acts of kindness, merits, beneficial Influence, kindness, indebtedness, obligation, and benevolent influence.

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.
