Ghost Demon

鬼 can mean ghost, ogre, demon, or "spirit of a deceased person," in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

In some context, it can also mean sly, crafty, ogre-like person (i.e. fierce, relentless, merciless, etc.)

This can also be the "ghost" constellation (one of the 28 mansions in Chinese folklore).

An extended list of meanings includes: departed; dead; a disembodied spirit; dead person; evil being; hungry ghost.

Demon / Ghost / Apparition

China yāo mó
Japan you ma
Demon / Ghost / Apparition

妖魔 means demon in Chinese, and perhaps slanted towards ghost in Japanese.

Daredevil Warrior
Soul of a Warrior

Japan oni mu sha
Daredevil Warrior / Soul of a Warrior

鬼武者 is an unusual title that can be translated two ways. The most common is probably "daredevil warrior." However, the first character means demon, ghost, or soul of the departed. Therefore, it can kind of mean soul of a warrior, or demon warrior.

This title is Japanese only, and should not be used if your audience is Chinese.

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.
