Sorry, too late for Christmas delivery of custom calligraphy. But I do have a lot of in-stock calligraphy. If you have an emergency, I have a limited number of blank scrolls and can have a local calligrapher create something for you.
Want to order a custom scroll now? I can also create a web page to show the gift recipient about the scroll they will receive in January. Contact me!

Protector

China bǎo hù zhě
Japan hogosha
Protector Wall Scroll

保護者 is the universal word for protector in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

The first character means to defend, to protect, to insure or guarantee, to maintain, hold or keep, or to guard.

The second character means to protect.

Together the first and second characters create a word that means to defend, to protect, or to safeguard.

The last character means person.

Add all three characters together, and you have a word that means "protector," one who will protect, guard, and keep you safe.

Some will also translate this word as guardian or patron.


Note: Not a common selection for a wall scroll in Asia.

Protector

China shǒu hù zhě
Japan shu go sha
Protector Wall Scroll

守護者 is a Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja title for a protector, watcher, or keeper.

The character breakdown:
守護 = to guard; to protect; protection; safeguard.
者 = person; someone of that nature; someone doing that work, the one [who, which].

From this breakdown, you can translate this as, "The one who protects," "Someone who safeguards," or "guardian."

Guardian Angel

China shǒu hù tiān shǐ
Japan shu go ten shi
Guardian Angel Wall Scroll

守護天使 is the title used for guardian angel in Chinese and Japanese Kanji. It's used in the same way that we use this title in the west - such as a guardian angel watching out for you, and allowing you to survive a disaster or accident.

The first two characters mean to guard and protect. The second two mean "angel" (literally "Heaven's messenger").

Divine Protection

China jiā hù
Japan ka go
Divine Protection Wall Scroll

加護 is Japanese for "divine protection" or "the saving grace of God."

Please consider this blessing to be Japanese only. This can have the same meaning in the context of Buddhism in Chinese but it's also a nickname for "intensive care" at Chinese hospitals.

Note: My Japanese translator says this is not very commonly used in Japanese. I added this because a customer asked for it. There is not really a better Japanese phrase to express this idea - so this is it if you want it.

Guardian / Defender

China wèi shì
Japan eishi
Guardian / Defender Wall Scroll

衛士 is a Chinese title that means guardian or defender.

衛士 is also used in Japanese to refer to soldiers of the Ritsuryo system that were guardians of the gates of the imperial palace / court or guards posted at the grand shrine.

Protection

China bì hù
Japan hi go
Protection Wall Scroll

庇護 is not the most common word for a wall scroll but this is the word for protection in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

庇護 is the non-religious, non-superstitious form of protection.

庇護 can be translated as shelter, shield, defend, safeguard, take under one's wing, to put under protection. In certain context, it means to grant asylum or give refuge and sanctuary.

Blessings and Protection

China bǎo yòu
Blessings and Protection Wall Scroll

保佑 / 保祐 is the more religious and sometimes superstitious word for protection in Chinese. It's sort of a blessing of protection, and is often translated as "bless and protect," "blessing," or "to bless."

This would be used the protection or blessing that a deity (such as God) would bestow upon you. It is not religion-specific in the same way that a language itself cannot be specific to any religion.


祐Note: Sometimes the second character is written in the form shown to the right. Let us know if you have a preference when you place your order.

God Bless You / May God Protect You

China shàng dì bǎo yòu
God Bless You / May God Protect You Wall Scroll

上帝保佑 is a blessing exchanged between Chinese Christians.

The first two characters literally mean God (The God of Zion). The second two characters express the idea of giving protection. Another way to translate this is "May God protect you."


See Also:  Guardian Angel

Under the Protection of the Dragon Saint

China shén lóng bì hù
Under the Protection of the Dragon Saint Wall Scroll

神龍庇護 is not the most common thing to say in Chinese but it is grammatically correct and a cool title.

The first character means "supernatural or saintly." The second is "dragon." The last two mean protection. You could also translate this as something like "Protected by the Dragon God" or more closely "Holy Dragon."

Blessings and Protection

Japan shukufuku to hogo
Blessings and Protection Wall Scroll

祝福と保護 means, "blessings and protection," in Japanese.

God Bless You
God Be With You

Japan kami sa ma ga mamo ru you ni
God Bless You / God Be With You Wall Scroll

This is about as close as you can get to, "God Bless You" in Japanese.

This literally means, "[May] God Protect [You]." It can also mean, "God is Always With You," as the word in this phrase that means "protect" can also mean to follow or be with. In fact, the Japanese dictionary entry for that word reads like this: to protect; to guard; to defend; to keep (i.e. a promise); to abide; to observe; to follow.


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

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.
