Lost Soul

China sàng hún shī pò
Lost Soul Wall Scroll

This Chinese idiom means, "lost soul, vanished spirit." It relays a feeling of being distraught, at a loss, or heart-broken.

Lonely Soul / Lost Soul

China gū hún
Lonely Soul / Lost Soul Wall Scroll

孤魂 is a Chinese title that means, "lonely soul." In the context of being a soul without a mate or all alone, this can be translated as, "lost soul."

Broken Hearted

Japan shitsuren
Broken Hearted Wall Scroll

In Chinese, this can mean to lose one's love; to break up (in a romantic relationship); to feel jilted.

In Japanese Kanji, this means disappointed love, broken heart, unrequited love, or being lovelorn.

This is also valid in old Korean Hanja, where is means unrequited love, unreturned love, a disappointment in love, or a broken heart.

Note: In modern Japan, they will tend to write the more simple 失恋 form instead of 失戀. If you order this from the Japanese master calligrapher, expect the more simple modern version to be written (unless you give us instructions to use the older or more traditional version).

Lost Love

Japan ai mei
Lost Love Wall Scroll

This Japanese title can mean straying from love, falling out of love, or lost love.

Lonely Soul / Solitary

China xíng dān yǐng zhī
Lonely Soul / Solitary Wall Scroll

This Chinese idiom means "lonely soul" if you are a solitary person, or lost soul, this may be the title for you.

Desire / Longing / Craving

China
Japan yoku
Desire / Longing / Craving Wall Scroll

慾 means desire, longing, appetite, wish, covetousness, greed, passion, desire, avarice, and craving.

慾 is universal in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja.

The context in which this character is used, determines whether the meaning is good or bad. As a single character on a wall scroll, you get to decide what the definition is to you (hopefully more toward desire than greed).


Japanese DesirePlease note that Japanese use a simplified version of this character - it also happens to be the same simplification used in mainland China. Click on the character to the right if you want the Japanese/Simplified version of desire.

Lonely

China gū dú
Japan ko doku
Lonely Wall Scroll

This means lonely, solitude, loneliness, and lonesome.
In some context, it can mean reclusive, isolation, single or solo.

This is a Japanese word but not a good selection for a wall scroll.
In Chinese, this will relay a rather sad feeling to anyone who reads this calligraphy on your wall.


独The version shown to the left is the Traditional Chinese and ancient Japanese version. In modern Japan and China they often use a different more simplified version of the second character (as shown to the right). If you want this Japanese/Simplified version, please click on the character shown to the right instead of the button above.

Alone / A Lone Person

Japan dokuji
Alone / A Lone Person Wall Scroll

This Japanese word means "alone" in the context of a person by himself/herself. This can be translated as individual; solo; on one's own; by oneself.

Alone / Solitary Existence

China dú jū
Japan dokkyo
Alone / Solitary Existence Wall Scroll

This Chinese title can be translated as to live alone, to live a solitary existence, solitude, solitary life, dwelling alone, e.g. as a hermit.


独 In modern Japan, and Simplified Chinese, they use the version of the first character shown to the right. If you want this version please click on the character to the right instead of the button above.

I Miss You

China wǒ xiǎng nǐ
I Miss You Wall Scroll

我想你 is the Chinese way to say "I miss you." It is said in the same word order in both English and Chinese.

Pain of Love / Love Troubles

Japan koinonayami
Pain of Love / Love Troubles Wall Scroll

戀の悩み is a Japanese title that refers to anyone having love troubles (experiencing the pain of love).


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

Alone / A Lone Person

China dú zì yì rén
Alone / A Lone Person Wall Scroll

獨自一人 means "alone" in the context of a person by himself/herself.


See Also:  I Miss You

Miss You Forever

China yǒng yuǎn xiǎng niàn nǐ
Miss You Forever Wall Scroll

永遠想念你 is how to write "missing you forever" in Chinese.

The first two characters mean "forever" or "eternally."
The third and forth characters mean "missing" or "longing for."
The last character means "you."

This might suggest that you are missing someone whom you will never see again (depending on how you read it, or in what context it is used).

Alone with only your shadow for company

China qióng qióng jié lì xíng yǐng xiāng diào
Alone with only your shadow for company Wall Scroll

This proverb is about the state of being as alone as you possibly can be. It can be translated as, "Alone with only your shadow for comfort/company."

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.
