Precious

China zhēn guì de
Precious Wall Scroll

珍貴的 is an adjective that means "precious" in Chinese.

Precious

Japan tattoi
Precious Wall Scroll

This Japanese word means precious, valuable, priceless, noble, exalted, or sacred.

Precious / Treasure

Japan ki chou hin
Precious / Treasure Wall Scroll

貴重品 means precious or treasured as an adjective or as a noun, valuables or treasures in Japanese.

This word exists in the Korean dictionary but is rarely if ever used in Korea.

Time is as Precious as Gold

China xí shí rú jīn
Time is as Precious as Gold Wall Scroll

This proverb can be translated as "Cherish Time as if it was Gold," or "Time is as Valuable as Gold."

This basically suggests that time is gold, and you should value the time you have (and use it well).

A Moment of Time
is as Precious as Gold

Japan shunshouikkoku
A Moment of Time / is as Precious as Gold Wall Scroll

This Japanese proverb means, "A moment of time in a spring evening (is worth a thousand pieces of gold)".

Treasure

China zhēn bǎo
Japan chin hou
Treasure Wall Scroll

In Chinese this word meaning treasure, something you value highly, or something very precious to you.

In Japanese, this has a meaning like "rare treasure."

The first character can mean precious thing or treasure. The second character can mean a jewel or gem, a treasure or simply precious. Together these two characters reinforce each other into a word that clearly means treasure.

Treasure

China bǎo
Japan takara
Treasure Wall Scroll

This character means precious thing or treasure. This can also mean precious, a gem, a pearl, or anything valuable.


宝The version of this character shown to the left is the traditional Chinese and ancient/traditional Japanese version. In modern Japan and China, 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. If your audience is Chinese or Korean, I recommend the ancient/traditional form. Only consider the simplified form if your audience is younger Japanese people.

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.

Jade

(precious stone)
China
Japan tama / gyoku
Jade Wall Scroll

玉 is how to write jade in Chinese, Korean Hanja, and Japanese Kanji. This refers to the semi-precious stone that can be almost white or a vivid green.

Note: In Japanese, this character can mean jewel, ball, sphere or coin depending on context.

If your name is Jade, you may want to choose this to represent your name by meaning rather than pronunciation.

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.
