Woman

The ancient way to say Woman
China jīn guó
Woman

巾幗 is the very old way to say woman in Chinese.

A common title ancient China, this actually refers to the scarf or head wrapping worn by virtually all women at that time.

巾幗 is kind of a cool way to say Woman now. The actual gender character alone on a wall scroll would actually just look like a fancy sign for the woman's restroom (WC).
女If you are curious, the character to the right directly means female or woman. 巾幗 is useful information if you are a woman in need of a toilet in China.

Woman of Strong Character
Woman Hero

China nǚ jiá
Japan joketsu
Woman of Strong Character / Woman Hero

女傑 can mean brave woman, heroine, lady of character, distinguished woman, outstanding woman, and sometimes prominent woman.

In modern usage, some people might use this to give a title to women like Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, or Sarah Palin. I would rather use it for a woman like Araceli Segarra (the first woman from Spain to climb Mt. Everest).

Strong Woman

China nǚ qiáng rén
Strong Woman

女強人 is the best way to say "strong woman" or "strong and independent woman" in Chinese.

Grammar in China is a bit different, so these three characters literally read as "female strength person" or "woman strong person." This might sound funny in English but this is a natural-sounding title in Chinese.

Strong-Minded Woman

Japan reppu
Strong-Minded Woman

烈婦 is a Japanese title for a strong-minded woman, virtuous woman, or heroine.

In some context, it can refer to a pure or chaste woman.

Woman Hero / Heroine

China jīn guó yīng xióng
Woman Hero / Heroine

巾幗英雄 is a cool and somewhat ancient way to say woman hero in Chinese. 巾幗英雄 is used in modern times to refer to an outstanding woman or a woman with great accomplishments.

In the old days, it was a title for a woman warrior (oh, did I mention that there were great female generals who led huge armies into battle in ancient China?)

Whore / Mysterious Woman

Danger: Means prostitute in Japanese!
China xuán rén
Japan kurouto
Whore / Mysterious Woman

This literally means "Mysterious Person/Woman."

In Japanese, this is associated with a "geisha," which matches this definition of "mysterious woman." However, this is the colloquial way to say "professional geisha" or "expert prostitute" in Japanese. It, therefore, might not be what you want on your wall.


Notes: This is a "Japanese only" term, though a Chinese person who sees these characters will think of a geisha or an alluring Japanese female musician.
While not often seen in Korean Hanja, this would mean a "dark woman," as in a woman that you cannot easily see through.

Beautiful Woman

China měi lì de nǚ rén
Beautiful Woman

美麗的女人 is the best and most polite way to express "beautiful woman" in Chinese.

Note: Some people may like the simple 2-character 美女 way to express this but there are some bad connotations with that, so better to stay with this longer and more respectful title.

Woman’s Association

Japan fujinkai
Woman’s Association

婦人會 is a Japanese title for women's group or association.

Girl Power / Woman Power

China nǚ lì
Japan onna ryoku / me riki
Girl Power / Woman Power

This can be read as "girl power," "woman power," or "female strength."

女力 is kind of a strange or unofficial title in Chinese and Japanese. At least, it's not common for a wall scroll.

This should be "onna ryoku" in Japanese but I found some who suggest it should be "me riki."

Beautiful Girl

China měi lì de gū niang
Beautiful Girl

美麗的姑娘 is the best way to express "beautiful girl" in Chinese.

Phoenix (female)

China huáng
Japan ou
Phoenix (female)

凰 is another simple way to write "Phoenix" in Chinese. 凰 is the specifically female element of phoenix, so this is how you write "female phoenix." 凰 is sometimes used to represent the female empress (many times in history, China was ruled by a woman, in much the same way queens came to power in Europe).

Note that the emperor is always represented as a dragon (not the male version of phoenix).

If you see yourself as a strong woman, this might be scroll for you to express "woman power" or "powerful woman" in a cool way.

Beauty / Beautiful Princess

China yuàn
Japan hime / haru
Beauty / Beautiful Princess

媛 means, a beauty; beautiful (woman); princess; young lady of noble birth; girl; small & lovely.

媛 is used a bit more commonly in Chinese than Japanese.


Note: This can be the female given name "Hime" in Japanese.

Jinni / Golden Girl

China jīn nī
Jinni / Golden Girl

金妮 is a transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Jinni.

金妮 means, "golden girl," or "girl of gold" in Chinese.

金妮 is the special name I made up and chose for my third daughter. There is also another, more common way to transliterate this name which is 吉尼 instead of 金妮.

Princess

Japan oujo
Princess

王女 is a Japanese title that means princess.

Bad Girl

Japan furyoushoujo
Bad Girl

This Japanese word means bad girl or female juvenile delinquent.

It's an unusual choice for calligraphy.

Beautiful Princess

China měi lì de gōng zhǔ
Beautiful Princess

美麗的公主 is how to write beautiful princess in Chinese. The first two characters mean feminine beauty, or rather a way to say beautiful that only applies to women. The middle character is just a connecting character. The last two characters mean princess.

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.

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.
