イタリア人 is the Japanese word for Italian (as in an Italian person).


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

意大利人 is the Chinese word for Italian (as in an Italian person).

義大利 is a variant for Italy that is used in Taiwan.

It can also be a suffix for something Italian.

Milano

Japan mirano
Milano Wall Scroll

ミラノ is the Japanese Katakana (phonetic Japanese) for the name and city, Milano.

This version is more the Italian pronunciation with the "o" rather than just the English Milan.


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

Milan

China mǐ lán
Japan mi ran
Milan Wall Scroll

米蘭 is the transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the Latin name Milan.

This also happens to be the Chinese name for the city Milan or Milano in Italy.

These characters are only used for their phonetic properties but this would mean "rice orchid." But any Chinese person will know that you are talking about either the Italian city or a person named Milan (and will not take the literal meaning).

Though technically, you are supposed to use Katakana instead of Kanji, this also sounds like Milan in Japanese. The pronunciation was borrowed from Chinese when Japan borrowed Chinese characters in the 5th century.

Holy Bible

China shèng jīng
Holy Bible Wall Scroll

聖經 is how to write Bible in Chinese.

The first character means Holy, sacred, saint, or sage.
The second character means sacred book or scripture.

Each Sunday morning, if you are near a Catholic or Protestant Church, you will see plenty of Chinese people carrying their Bibles. Virtually every large or medium city in China has, at least, one Christian church. Beijing has about 14 Christian churches of Catholic and various Protestant denominations. That number doubles if you count all the church services that are for foreigners only, and doubles again if you count all of the underground Christian Churches. Many Embassies (Canadian, Italian, French, etc.) offer Protestant and Catholic services. However, the U.S. Embassy is the most unfriendly Embassy in all of China, and offers no such religious services and regularly denies entry and kicks out Americans and others, whether or not they have official business.

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.
