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!

Dog

(another version)
China quǎn
Japan inu
Dog Wall Scroll

犬 is another way to write dog in Chinese and Japanese. Just like we have dog, hound, pooch, canine and other words in English. However, this is NOT the character used to express "Year of the Dog." Although it is the most common way to say/write "dog" in Japanese.

Dog

Year of the Dog / Zodiac Sign
China gǒu
Japan inu / ku
Dog Wall Scroll

狗 is the character for dog, canine or hound in Chinese.

If you were born in the year of the dog, you . . .


Are strong-willed
Loyal to your friends and mate.
Never compromise when you think you are right.

Note: Can be pronounced, and means dog in Japanese but feels like a very old word (see our other dog if you need a Japanese dog).

Akita Dog / Akitainu / Akita Inu

Japan aki ta inu
Akita Dog / Akitainu / Akita Inu Wall Scroll

鞦田犬 is the Japanese title of the breed of dog known as an Akita. Technically, the title above means "Akita hound" or "Akita Dog." The literal translation of these characters is "autumn field dog."


Note: This title is Japanese only. In China, this breed of dog is referred to as "The Japanese breed" (literally: Japanese hound).

Chinese title: 日本犬

Fu Dog / Foo Dog

China shí shī zi
Fu Dog / Foo Dog Wall Scroll

While known in the west as fu dogs or foo dogs, these are actually guardian lions.

These are the lion statues traditionally placed at the entrance of Chinese imperial palaces, imperial tombs, temples, and high-ranking officials' homes. These days, you are more likely to see them at the entrance to a fancy Chinese restaurant.

This title actually means, "stone lion(s)".

Love the Flower, Love the Pot also

Love Me, Love My Dog
China ài huā lián pén ài ài nǚ téng nǚ xù
Love the Flower, Love the Pot also Wall Scroll

This proverb literally translates as, "If one loves a flower, [one will] love it's pot; [if one really] loves [one's] daughter, [one will also] love [one's] son-in-law."

Figuratively, is similar to the English proverbs:
Love me, love my dog.
Love for a person extends even to the crows on his roof.

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.
