Grace

China gé lěi sī
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the name Grace transliterated into Mandarin Chinese.

Please note: This sounds like grace but does not mean grace. If you want the meaning of grace, please choose a different title.

Grace

China ēn
Japan on
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is often translated as "kind act from above," as in "The Grace of God." This doesn't necessarily have to come from God. It could be a favor paid to you, or help that you received (or gave). Of course, you can decide for yourself whether the grace or favor given to you by a friend is actually a gift from God.

Other possible translations of this character:
Favor / favour, acts of kindness, merits, beneficial Influence, kindness, indebtedness, obligation, and benevolent influence.

Grace

Japan gureesu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the name Grace written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Elegant / Exquisite / Grace

China měi miào
Japan bimyou
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

Beyond elegant and exquisite elegance, this is also the word used to say "beautiful" or "marvelous" when referring to a work of art.

Can also be translated as exquisiteness, gracefulness.

Note: Not a commonly used word in Japanese.

Grace / Favor

China ēn chǒng
Japan on chou
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This means grace or favor in Chinese characters, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

In ancient China, this was a special favor bestowed from a ruler. It could also be the Emperor's generosity towards a favorite person or concubine.

Grace / Favor

China ēn diǎn
Japan on ten
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is one of several ways to express favor or grace in Chinese characters, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This version can refer to an act of grace or the granting of a special privilege.

Charm / Grace

China shén yùn
Japan shi nin
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the Chinese and Japanese word for charm or grace (in poetry or art) or exceptional artistry.

Grace from Heaven / Grace from God

China tiān ēn
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the deepest way to say "Heaven's Grace" or "God's Grace" in Chinese.

The first character means Heaven or sky (referring in this case to the domain of God).
The second character means grace, blessings, benevolence, favor/favour, acts of kindness, merits, or beneficial influence.

This title can also be defined as:
Blessings of Heaven, Favor of the Emperor, Divination's luckiest day, or blessings of nature. Note: When you see "Emperor" above, keep in mind that the Emperor, like the Pope is theoretically chosen by God, or seen as an emissary or conduit of God in ancient Asian culture. It would only be read that way in a certain context such as, "The Emperor, in his mercy, bestowed upon him Heaven's Grace and the prisoner was set free."


Note: Technically, this is a Japanese word too (pronounced "ten-on") but it's rarely used in Japan anymore. Therefore, this title is best if your audience is Chinese.

Amazing Grace

China qí yì ēn diǎn
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

奇異恩典 is the title, "Amazing Grace" in Chinese.

The first two characters can also mean amazing, fantastic, exotic, astonishing, odd, strange, wonderful, extraordinary, uncommon, or rare.

The last two characters mean "grace," as in "grace or favor of/from God."

Amazing Grace

Japan ameijingu gureisu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

アメイジング・グレイス is the Japanese Katakana for Amazing Grace.

This phonetically sounds like the English, "Amazing Grace" but does not hold that meaning since it is a transliteration versus a translation.


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Grace from Heaven
Grace from God

Japan kami no on kei
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

神の恩恵 means God's Grace in Japanese.

The first two characters act to create a word that means "divine," "God's," or "The Spirit's."

The last two Kanji mean grace, favor/favour, blessing, or benefit.

Divine Grace

China tiān yòu
Japan ten yuu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is a Chinese and Japanese word that means divine aid, divine grace, Heaven blessed, or providential help.

Some Chinese people will use this to infer that this means a home or family blessed by heaven or God. This is the shortest way to express that idea anyway.

Grace of God / Divine Blessing

Japan shin kei
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This can be translated as, "God's Blessing," "Blessed by God," or "Divine Blessing" in Japanese Kanji.

Mary-Grace

Japan meariigureesu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the name Mary-Grace written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

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.
