Sorry, too late for Christmas delivery of custom calligraphy. But I do have a lot of in-stock calligraphy. If you have an emergency, I have a limited number of blank scrolls and can have a local calligrapher create something for you.
Want to order a custom scroll now? I can also create a web page to show the gift recipient about the scroll they will receive in January. Contact me!

Dance / Dancing

China wǔ dǎo
Japan butou
Dance / Dancing Wall Scroll

舞蹈 is the clearest way to express the art of dancing in Chinese, Japanese and Korean. If you are a dancer, or love the art of dance, this is the calligraphy selection for you.


Japan buyou
Dance Wall Scroll

舞踴 is the most proper term for dance or dancing in Japanese.

The first Kanji means "dance," and the second means to jump or leap. Together, they are just a strong way to say "dance" (the second Kanji just clarifies the first - nobody will translate this as "dance jumping").


Japan mai
Dance Wall Scroll

舞 is the simplest way to write dance in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

It can also be translated as to dance, to wield, to brandish or to circle.

舞 reads more clearly as dance Chinese than it does in Japanese (see our two-character word for dancing if you want to be absolutely clear in both languages).

Lion Dance

Japan shi shi mai
Lion Dance Wall Scroll

獅子舞 is the Japanese title for lion dancing.

This refers to the Japanese version borrowed from traditional Chinese culture. The Japanese version almost always features a red-faced lion with a green cloak with a white pattern.

Chinese the eight precepts (Buddhism)
Japanese (Buddhist term) the eight precepts (in addition to the five precepts, prohibitions against: lying in a luxurious bed; self-decoration, song & dance; and eating after noon)
(八戒齋) The first eight of the ten commandments, see 戒; not to kill; not to take things not given; no ignoble (i.e. sexual) conduct; not to speak falsely; not to drink wine; not to indulge in cosmetics, personal adornments, dancing, or music; not to sleep on fine beds, but on a mat on the ground; and not to eat out of regulation hours, i.e. after noon. Another group divides the sixth into two―against cosmetics and adornments and against dancing and music; the first eight are then called the eight prohibitory commands and the last the 齋 or fasting commandment. Also 八齋戒; 八關齋 (八支齋) ; cf. 八種勝法; eight precepts

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.
