Wisdom / Intelligence

Japan chie
Wisdom / Intelligence Wall Scroll

This Japanese word means wisdom; wit; sagacity; sense; intelligence.

In Buddhist context, this is prajna (insight leading to enlightenment).

This can also be the Japanese female given name Norie.

Wisdom

China zhì
Japan chi / tomo
Wisdom Wall Scroll

智 is the simplest way to write wisdom in Chinese, Korean Hanja, and Japanese Kanji.
Being a single character, the wisdom meaning is open to interpretation, and can also mean intellect, knowledge or reason, resourcefulness, or wit.

This character is also one of the five tenets of Confucius.

This character is sometimes included in the Bushido code but usually not considered part of the seven key concepts of the code.


See our Wisdom in Chinese, Japanese and Korean page for more wisdom-related calligraphy.

Scarlet / Red / Crimson

China chì
Japan aka
Scarlet / Red / Crimson Wall Scroll

This character can represent the color scarlet, red, or crimson.

In some special contexts, it can also mean naked, whole, total, perfect, obvious, or the Japanese surname, Sekizaki.

Scops Owl / Black Kite

China chī
Japan tonbi / tobi
Scops Owl / Black Kite Wall Scroll

In Chinese, this is the Scops Owl. In Japanese, this is the black kite (Milvus migrans).

Colloquially in Japanese, this can refer to a construction worker who walks on or erects scaffolding. It can also be a firefighter up high on a ladder or building.

Sanchi / Yamaji

China shān dì
Japan san chi / yama ji
Sanchi / Yamaji Wall Scroll

山地 means mountainous region, hilly area, or hilly country in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

山地 is also a Japanese surname that romanizes as Yamaji or Sanchi.


Note: This is not the only Japanese name that romanizes as Yamaji or Sanchi. Make sure this is the right one before you order.

Once in a Lifetime

China yī qī yī huì
Japan ichigoichie
Once in a Lifetime Wall Scroll

This Japanese title can be translated as "for this time only," "chance meeting," "one meeting, one opportunity," "never again," or "one chance in a lifetime."

The characters literally mean "one time one meeting" - of course, the Kanji characters have meaning far beyond a direct translation like this.

Some might use this proverb to talk of an opportunity that presents itself just once in your life. It could also be the single chance-meeting with your true soul mate. Basically an expression for any event that might happen once in a lifetime.


This is primarily a Japanese title, however, there is also a Traditional Chinese (and old Korean) version of this proverb. Just the last character is different.
會The traditional form was used in Japan before WWII and in Korea prior to 1900. This title is somewhat known in China.

If you want the older traditional form, just click on the character to the right.

Sumptuous Debauchery

China jiǔ chí ròu lín
Japan shu chi niku rin
Sumptuous Debauchery Wall Scroll

酒池肉林 is a Chinese idiom that is also somewhat known in Japanese and Korean.

酒池肉林 literally means, "lakes of wine and forests of meat."

Figuratively, it refers to debauchery, sumptuous entertainment, a sumptuous feast, or any kind of ridiculously-lavish spread of food and wine.

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 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.
