Good Health

China jiàn kāng
Japan kenkou
Good Health Wall Scroll

健康 is the best way to express good health in Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

These characters also suggest the ideas of being solid, strong, sound, wholesome and at peace.

Can also be used to express "healthy," "vitality," or "well-being."


See Also:  Health | Vitality | Wellness

Good Health / Healthy / Vigor

Also suggests being at peace
China kāng
Japan kou
Good Health / Healthy / Vigor Wall Scroll

康 is a single character that means good health or vigor in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This character can also mean peaceful, at ease, or abundant in some contexts.

Please note that this is rarely seen alone in Japanese Kanji. In Japanese, it is used both for health-related compound words and to denote the kouhou through koushou eras of Japan.

In Korean, this can also be the family name "Kang" (caution: not the only family name romanized as Kang in Korean).

Peace and Good Health

China ān kāng
Peace and Good Health Wall Scroll

安康 means just what it says. It's a word that expresses both the idea of being at peace and healthy at the same time.

Note: 安康 is a bona-fide word in Chinese and Korean, and the characters will at least make sense in Japanese.

Restoration to Good Health

China píng fù
Japan byou fuku
Restoration to Good Health Wall Scroll

This Chinese and Japanese title means "to be cured," "to be healed," "restoration to health," or "recovery from illness."

In some context, it can mean "to pacify" or "to calm down."

Inner Strength / Inner Well-Being and Health

China nèi jiàn
Inner Strength / Inner Well-Being and Health Wall Scroll

內健 is an old Chinese word meaning inner strength, or inner health. It's the idea of health and well-being starting or residing from inside yourself. Also defined as fortitude within the context of good health.

Wellness

China shēn tǐ jiàn kāng
Japan shin tai ken kou
Wellness Wall Scroll

身體健康 is how to express "wellness" in Chinese. The meaning is not much different than the idea of "good health." In fact, the first two characters alone are often translated as "health." Some will also translate this title as "physical health."

If you want to fill your room with a feeling of wellness, this is the wall scroll for you.

身體健康 is also the ancient way to express wellness in Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja. The modern Japanese form is only different on the second Kanji but Koreans have completely changed their common writing system in the last 100 years.


See Also:  Health | Vitality

Vitality

China shēng mìng lì
Japan seimeiryoku
Vitality Wall Scroll

This word can mean "vitality" or "libido." The first two characters mean "life" or "life force." The last character is a common word that means "strength." So together you get the meaning "life strength" which is the essence of vitality. Some will also translate this word as "good health."


See Also:  Life Force | Health

Robust / Sturdy

China qiáng jiàn
Japan kyouken
Robust / Sturdy Wall Scroll

強健 means robustness or sturdiness in regards to being healthy and fit. This can also be used to say "persistently good health."

The Spirit of the Dragon Horse

China lóng mǎ jīng shén
The Spirit of the Dragon Horse Wall Scroll

龍馬精神 is an old proverb that is used to wish someone good health and success combined as a great compliment.

The meaning is "The vigor and spirit of the legendary dragon-horse." These four characters are often accompanied by four more which mean, "...and the power and prestige of the tiger." Here we are just offering the first part which is considered the short version.

By giving a wall scroll like this to someone, you were either wishing or telling them that they have an amazing quality. There is also a suggestion of good health - at least anyone with the vigor of a dragon horse, would seem to also be in good health.


Note: In Japanese, this would be read as the spirit of 坂本龍馬 (Sakamoto_Ryōma), a beloved rebel who help abolish the old Japanese feudal system. This can be confusing, so I am declaring this proverb to be Chinese only.

Choose Life

China xuǎn zé shēng huó
Choose Life Wall Scroll

This can mean to choose life instead of death (or suicide) or to choose to live life to the fullest.

I think of it as the key phrase used by Renton (Ewan McGregor) in the movie Trainspotting. While Chinese people will not think of Trainspotting when they see this phrase, for me, it will always be what comes near the end of this colorful rant:

Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin can openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed-interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisure wear and matching luggage. Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you have spawned to replace yourself. Choose your future. Choose life.

Peaceful / Tranquil / Calm
Free From Worry

China ān níng
Japan an nei
Peaceful / Tranquil / Calm / Free From Worry Wall Scroll

安寧 is a nice word that means peaceful, tranquil, calm, composed, "free from worry," "public peace," tranquility, good health, well-being, or welfare in Chinese and Korean.

Note: The definition in Japanese is not so broad but still means peaceful or "public peace."

The Spirit of the Dragon Horse,
the Power of a Tiger.

China lóng mǎ jīng shén hǔ hǔ shēng wēi
The Spirit of the Dragon Horse, / the Power of a Tiger. Wall Scroll

龍馬精神虎虎生威 is an old proverb that is used to wish someone great health and success combined as a great compliment.

The meaning is "The vigor and spirit of the legendary dragon-horse, and the power and prestige of the tiger."

By giving a wall scroll like this to someone, you were either wishing or telling them that they have these qualities. There is also a suggestion of good health - at least anyone with the vigor of a dragon horse, would seem to also be in good health.

Blessings on this Home

China wǔ fú lín mén
Blessings on this Home Wall Scroll

This literally means, "five good-fortunes arrive [at the] door." It is understood to mean, "may the five blessings descend upon this home."

These blessing are known in ancient China to be: longevity, wealth, health, virtue, and a natural death (living to old age). 五福臨門 is one of several auspicious sayings you might hear during Chinese New Years.

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 nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
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.
