Infinity / Infinite / Unlimited / Unbounded Wall Scroll

無限 is the Chinese and Japanese word meaning infinity, unlimited or unbounded.

無限 literally translates as "without limits" or "without [being] bound."

The first character means "never" or "not" or like a prefix "un-."

The second means "limited," "restricted," or "bound."

Please note that the Japanese definition leans more toward "infinity" and the Chinese is more about being "boundless" or "without limits."

In Korean, this means infinity, infinitude, or boundlessness. But in Korean, this term has many interpretations or contexts, so your intended meaning might come out a little vague or ambiguous.

Infinity / Infinite / Endless / Boundless Wall Scroll

無窮 is the Chinese and Korean word meaning infinity, eternity, infinitude, infinite or endless.

無窮 literally translates as "without [ever becoming] exhausted/poor," and in that context, can mean "inexhaustible" or "boundless" but this is usually read as "without end." Some extended definitions include eternity, infinitude, or immortality.

In certain context, it can mean "immortality."

The first character means "never" or "not." The second means "exhausted," "finished," or "ending."

Note: 無窮 is a Japanese word but rarely used in modern Japan.

To Infinity and Beyond

China chāo yuè wú xiàn
To Infinity and Beyond Wall Scroll

超越無限 means, "to infinity and beyond," in Chinese.

超越無限 is how the slogan/phrase from Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear was translated from the movie into Chinese.

To Infinity and Beyond

Japan mugen no kanata e
To Infinity and Beyond Wall Scroll

無限の彼方へ means, "to infinity and beyond," in Japanese.

無限の彼方へ is how the slogan/phrase from Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear was translated from the movie into Japanese.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Love Forever / Love Eternally

China ài yǒng yuǎn
Japan ai ei en
Love Forever / Love Eternally Wall Scroll

The first character here means "love."

The last two mean forever, eternity, eternal, perpetuity, immortality, and/or permanence.

愛永遠 is the shortest and most universal way to express this idea in Chinese and Japanese.

Japanese note: This sound more like a title than a phrase in Japanese (if that makes any sense). 愛永遠 is a great title for a romantic book, title of a movie, name of a perfume, or even a name for a store.


See Also:  Eternal Love | Forever Love

Forever Love

China yǒng yuǎn de ài
Forever Love Wall Scroll

The first two characters mean forever, eternal, eternity, perpetuity, immortality, and/or permanence.

The third character is a possessive article which sort of makes this selection mean "The forever kind of love."

The last character is "love."


See Also:  Eternal Love Always

Eternal / Eternity

China yǒng héng
Eternal / Eternity Wall Scroll

永恆 is the Chinese word for eternity.
The first character means always, forever and perpetual. The second character holds the meaning of permanent. Together, they create a word that means eternal, eternally or infinite time.


See Also:  Immortality

Eternity / Always and Forever

China yǒng yuǎn
Japan ei-en
Eternity / Always and Forever Wall Scroll

永遠 is the Chinese, Korean and Japanese word for "forever."

If we take this word apart, the first character means "always," "forever" or "perpetual." While the second character means "far" or "distant."


See Also:  Immortality

Forever Family

China yǒng yuǎn de jiā
Forever Family Wall Scroll

永遠的家 is a special phrase that we composed for a "family by adoption" or "adoptive family."

It's the dream of every orphan and foster child to be formally adopted and find their "forever family."

The first two characters mean forever, eternal, eternity, perpetuity, immortality, and/or permanence. The third character connects this idea with the last character which means "family" and/or "home."

Sky / Ether / Void / Emptiness / Unreality

(Used in Japanese version of five elements)
China kōng
Japan kuu / kara / sora / ron
Sky / Ether / Void / Emptiness / Unreality Wall Scroll

This single character means empty, void, hollow, vacant, vacuum, blank, nonexistent, vacuity, voidness, emptiness, non-existence, immateriality, unreality, the false or illusory nature of all existence, being unreal.

In Buddhist context, this relates to the doctrine that all phenomena and the ego have no reality but are composed of a certain number of skandhas or elements, which disintegrate. The void, the sky, space. The universal, the absolute, complete abstraction without relativity. The doctrine further explains that all things are compounds, or unstable organisms, possessing no self-essence, i.e. are dependent, or caused, come into existence only to perish. The underlying reality, the principle of eternal relativity, or non-infinity, i.e. śūnya, permeates all phenomena making possible their evolution.

From Sanskrit and/or Pali, this is the translation to Chinese and Japanese of the title śūnya or śūnyatā.

In Japanese, when pronounced as "ron" (sounds like "roan") this can be a given name. It should be noted that this Kanji has about 5 different possible pronunciations in Japanese: kuu, kara, sora, ron, and uro. 空 is also an element in the Japanese version of the five elements.

Enso - Japanese Zen Circle

Japan en sou
Enso - Japanese Zen Circle Wall Scroll

〇 / 円相 is Enso, which is really NOT a regular Japanese Kanji character. It falls more into the category of a symbol. In this case, it can be considered a religious symbol, as it is strongly-associated with Japanese Zen Buddhism.

Enso Circle

〇 / 円相 is a typical appearance of Enso with an inscription by master calligrapher Bishou Imai.

Some call this "The Circle of Enlightenment." Others call it the "Infinity Circle." If you actually took the meanings of the two Kanji that make up the word "Enso," you could read it as "Mutual Circle" or "Circle of Togetherness." I think the Enso symbol can simply mean different things to different people. Therefore, you should let it have the meaning that you perceive.

Please note when you start making your customizations for an Enso wall scroll, you will see some possible ways it might be written, listed under the different calligraphy styles that we normally offer. However, Enso does not really conform to normal Asian calligraphy styles. Therefore, do not expect that you can make a style selection and expect the actual result to be identical. The appearance of your Enso will be determined by the artist's personal style, feeling, mood, etc. You cannot control or constrain that, as you cannot constrain art, without removing some of the artistic quality. Note: Our calligraphy selection process does not take this into account, as it was designed for Chinese characters and Japanese Kanji selection.

Please ignore the part where you are invited to pick a calligraphy style in the following pages.

Both our Japanese and Chinese master calligraphers are Buddhist (not as devout as monks but Buddhist none the less). Therefore, you can be assured that your Enso symbol will be written with the utmost effort and feeling.


By the way, when "Enso" is written in Kanji, it looks like this: 円相

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.

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.
