Money / Wealth

China jīn qián
Japan kin sen
Money / Wealth Wall Scroll

金錢 / 金銭 means money, cash, currency or wealth in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

Literally, it means "gold coins" but has come to be used to mean money in general, as well as the idea of wealth.


銭The second character of this word is written in a variant form in Japan. The more common version in Japan is shown to the right. Click on the Kanji to the right instead of the button above if you want this Japanese variant in your calligraphy.

Wealth / Riches / Fortune

China cái fù
Wealth / Riches / Fortune Wall Scroll

財富 means wealth or riches in Chinese.

Hanging this on your wall will label you as a "lover of money" or a "greedy person." Order this, only if you don't mind being seen in this light.

Money

China qián
Japan sen
Money Wall Scroll

錢 / 銭 is the simplest way to say "money" in Chinese. It can also mean cash, coins, or currency. It's also a surname in China.

銭 This also means coins in old Korean Hanja, and Japanese Kanji (though they use a slightly alternate form in Japan as seen to the right). In both Japan and Korea, this can simply mean "one cent."

金 On the left side of this character is a radical which means "gold" (or metal depending on context).

戋 戔 On the right are two repeated radicals which currently mean "small" or "narrow" but used to kind of mean "tools" or "weapon."

It's a bit of a stretch but you could suggest that money = "gold weapons" or "gold tools" in Chinese. Many Chinese people would argue otherwise depending on what they know of or the way they understand the etymology of the right side radical. I've seen some who say it means "industrialized gold."

Time is Money

Japan toki wa kane nari
Time is Money Wall Scroll

時は金なり is the Japanese phrase meaning, "Time is Money." It matches the use and meaning of the same idiom as used in English.


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

Wealth / Fortune / Riches / Abundance

China
Japan tomi
Wealth / Fortune / Riches / Abundance Wall Scroll

The title says it all; this word is clearly understood in Chinese and Japanese as well as Korean Hanja.

Treasure

China cái bǎo
Japan zaihou
Treasure Wall Scroll

財寶 is the Japanese word meaning "treasure" or "money and valuables."

The first character means "property," "money," "wealth" or "assets." The second character means "treasure," "wealth" or "valuables" in Japanese. Together these two characters reinforce each other into a word that clearly means treasure in Japanese.

財寶 is also a word meaning "money and valuables" in Chinese but more of a daily use word - not as appropriate for a wall scroll if your audience is Chinese.


宝The second character shown to the left is the ancient/traditional Japanese version. In modern Japan, this character has been simplified. This simplified version is shown to the right. If you want this modern Japanese/simplified version, just click the Kanji on the right, instead of the button above.

Yen

Japanese Currency
China yuán
Japan yen
Yen Wall Scroll

円 / 圓 is Yen, the Japanese currency.

円 / 圓 is actually the Japanese variant of the original Chinese 圓 or 圆. It means circle, entirety, whole, full, or complete. It was actually the slang usage that became money, dough, or moola.

Occasionally, this is used as a given name, or other interesting uses. This version of the character is almost never used in Chinese, unless referring to Japanese money.

Unless you have a specific reason to request it, this is a strange selection for a wall scroll.

Abundance and Prosperity

China fán róng fù yù
Japan hanei yuuhuku
Abundance and Prosperity Wall Scroll

繁榮富裕 is a proverb about "Prosperity and Abundance."

These characters present and reinforce the ideas of being prosperous, a booming economy, well-to-do, well-off, wealth, riches, and opulence.

繁榮富裕 is the ancient/traditional Chinese way to write this but most Japanese can fully read and understand it. It's also the correct form of old Korean Hanja (though few Koreans of the current generation will be able to read this).

Good Luck / Good Fortune

China
Japan fuku
Good Luck / Good Fortune Wall Scroll

This Character is pronounced "fu" in Chinese.

The character "fu" is posted by virtually all Chinese people on the doors of their homes during the Spring Festival (closely associated with the Chinese New Years).

One tradition from the Zhou Dynasty (beginning in 256 B.C.) holds that putting a fu symbol on your front door will keep the goddess of poverty away.

This character literally means good fortune, prosperity, blessed, happiness, and fulfillment.

Prosperity

(also means salary)
China
Japan fuchi
Prosperity Wall Scroll

This character is occasionally used in China to mean prosperity or good fortune.
This character once meant the "official's salary" in old feudal China and Korea (obviously, the officials lived well, so you can imagine how this was associated with the idea of being prosperous).

祿 is only used in Korean historical documents for "salary." In old Japanese, this means fief, allowance, stipend, reward, pension, grant and sometimes happiness depending on context. It's very obscure in modern Japanese.

We have other entries that are better-suited for a prosperity wall scroll. This entry just addresses "the coffee cup issue" where this character has been used on coffee cups and tee-shirts. However, without context, the meaning is ambiguous to some.

Prosperity

China fán róng
Japan han ei
Prosperity Wall Scroll

繁榮 means "prosperous," "flourishing," or "thriving" when used in regards to a person.

However, when used in reference to a whole country, it can mean "booming economy."

繁榮 is the traditional Chinese, ancient Japanese Kanji, and ancient Korean Hanja version of prosperity.


栄 Note: If you order this from the Japanese master calligrapher, the second character may look more like the Kanji shown to the right. If you want a different form, please note that in the special instructions for your order.

Prosperity and Happiness

China fù lè
Japan furaku
Prosperity and Happiness Wall Scroll

富樂 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for a title meaning prosperity and happiness.

If you have a desire to live in prosperity and happiness, this is for you.

Note: This title is often used in a Buddhist context.

Prosperity

China fán róng
Japan hanei
Prosperity Wall Scroll

繁栄 is the same "prosperity" as our traditional Chinese version, except for a slight change in the way the second character is written (it's the Japanese Kanji deviation from the original/ancient Chinese form). Chinese people will still be able to read this, though you should consider this to be the Japanese form (better if your audience is Japanese).

繁
荣

Sometimes the Kanji form shown to the right is used in Japanese. It will depend on the mood of the calligrapher, as to which form you may receive. If you have a preference, please let us know at the time of your order.

Abundance / Prosperous

China fù yù
Japan fu yuu
Abundance / Prosperous Wall Scroll

This word means prosperous, having abundance, well-to-do, or well-off.

It's a simple word that suggests that "you have made it" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja.

Year-In Year-Out Have Abundance

China nián nián yǒu yú
Year-In Year-Out Have Abundance Wall Scroll

年年有餘 is a common proverb or wish of prosperity you'll hear around the time of Chinese New Years.

Directly translated character by character it means, "Year Year Have Surplus." A more natural English translation including the deeper meaning would be "Every Year may you Have Abundance in your life."

On a side note, this phrase often goes with a gift of something related to fish. 年年有餘 is because the last character "yu" which means surplus or abundance has exactly the same pronunciation in Mandarin as the word for "fish."

年年有餘 is also one of the most common titles for traditional paintings that feature koi fish.

In China, this phrase might make an odd wall scroll - a customer asked especially for this common phrase which is why it appears here. See my other abundance-related words if you want a wall scroll that will seem more comfortable in Chinese culture.

Note: This can be pronounced in Korean, but it's not a commonly used term.

Realize Your Ambitions
Ride on the Crest of Success

China dà jiǎn hóng tú
Realize Your Ambitions / Ride on the Crest of Success Wall Scroll

This four-character proverb is used in Chinese to mean "realize your ambitions" or "exhibit your ambition and success." It's used to talk about someone with great career ambitions. Almost literally, it expresses the idea of someone unfolding a great career like a map or a set of blueprint plans.

Very literally translated, these four characters mean, "Great unfolding of a huge map" or "Great exhibition of an colossal plan."

Live in Prosperity

China shēng huó yú fán róng zhōng
Live in Prosperity Wall Scroll

生活于繁榮中 means, "live in prosperity." It's kind of a suggestion to be prosperity the center of your world.

生活于繁榮中 is the way some people want to live (and you should always live for what you love). However, this phrase does not suggest a peaceful life - rather one that is always busy. It's not for everyone but it might be for you.

Worldwide Wish for Peace and Prosperity

China qǐ shèng shì kāi tài píng
Worldwide Wish for Peace and Prosperity Wall Scroll

啟盛世開太平 means "To bring flourishing peace and security to the world (our current era)."

It's really a wish that a new door leading to peace and prosperity could be opened to mankind.

Character and word breakdown:
啟 to open; to start; to initiate; to enlighten or awaken.
盛世 a flourishing period; period of prosperity; a golden age.
開 to open; to start; to turn on.
太平 peace and security; peace and tranquility; peace; tranquility.
I don't really like to do breakdowns like this, as the words altogether create their own unique meaning (encompassed in the main title above). Please take that into consideration.

A Life of Happiness and Prosperity

China xìng fú chéng gōng de yì shēng
A Life of Happiness and Prosperity Wall Scroll

幸福成功的一生 means, "A life of happiness and prosperity" or "A life of happiness and success." It's a great and very positive and inspirational wall scroll selection.

Japan kou fuku to ha nei no jin sei

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

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.
