Chou

China chǒu
Japan chuu
Chou Wall Scroll

丑 can refer to the astrological time of the ox, or a Chinese surname, Chou.

丑 represents the 2nd earthly branch. In daily time, 1:00-3:00 AM, or the 12th/last month in the Chinese calendar.

In an ancient year-naming scheme, this can represent the year of the Ox (one of twelve animals paired with one of five element characters yielding a 60-year cycle).

Zhao

China zhào
Japan chou
Zhao Wall Scroll

In Chinese, this is Zhao, one of the seven states during the Warring States Period (476-220 B.C.). This is a different period than the Former Zhao 前趙 (304-329 A.D.) and Later Zhao 後趙 (319-350 A.D.) of the Sixteen Kingdoms.

This is also a surname in Chinese.

In Japanese, this can be the surname Hiyon or Chou (there are a few other possible pronunciations and names in Japanese).

Chow / Zhou

China zhōu
Japan shuu
Chow / Zhou Wall Scroll

周 originally represents the Zhou Dynasty (1046-256 BC) of ancient China.

It has become a surname in China that romanizes as Zhou from Mandarin, Chou in Taiwan, and often written as Chow from Cantonese.

The actual meaning is circle, circumference, lap, cycle, all, thorough, or perimeter. It is used in Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja with that meaning - though it can also be used as a name in those languages as well.

Zhang

China zhāng
Japan chou
Zhang Wall Scroll

張 is a Chinese surname that romanizes as Zhang.

This can also be the Japanese surnames Harisaki, Hari, Hara, Tsuan, Chou, Cho, Chiyan, Chiyau, Chan, Chian, Sun, Jin, Jiyon, Jiyan, Zan, San, or Kin.

The meaning of this character can be: to open up; to spread; sheet of paper; classifier for flat objects; sheet; classifier for votes.

Butterfly

China dié
Japan chou
Butterfly Wall Scroll

蝶 is the simplest way to write "butterfly" in Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

If you are looking at the Chinese pronunciation and Romanization, please note this is not pronounced like the English "die."
It actually sounds like "dee-ah." (Chinese Romanization does not exactly follow English or Latin pronunciation of Roman letters).

Super

China chāo
Japan chou
Super Wall Scroll

超 is "super" in Chinese and Japanese Kanji. It can also mean: to exceed; to overtake; to surpass; to transcend; to pass; to cross; to jump over. It can also be a suffix like ultra- hyper- super-

From Sanskrit, this can be the Buddhist "vikrama," meaning to leap over; surpass; exempt from; to save.

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.

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.
