Protector

China bǎo hù zhě
Japan hogosha
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This 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
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This 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
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This 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").

Warrior / Fighter

Senshi
Japan sen shi
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is an alternate title for warrior, soldier, fighter, warrior, guardian, or combatant in Japanese.

From Japanese, this is often romanized as "Senshi."

Guan Yu

China guān yǔ
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the name Guan Yu, Army General for the Kingdom of Shu.

He is also known as Guan Gong (like saying Duke Guan or Sir Guan)

He was immortalized in the novel, "Romance of the Three Kingdoms."

He was a fearsome fighter, also famous for his virtue and loyalty. He is worshiped by some modern-day soldiers and has the title "Warrior Saint" in China. Some believe he offers safety and protection for military servicemen.

Guan Yu lived until 219 A.D.

Guandi: God of War

China Guān dì
Japan kan tei
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the title, "Guandi," the God of War, a deified hero of the Three Kingdoms, a protector of Buddhism.

God Bless You / May God Protect You

China shàng dì bǎo yòu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This 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

Divine Protection

China jiā hù
Japan ka go
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This 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.

Blessings and Protection

Japan shukufuku to hogo
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This means, "blessings and protection," in Japanese.

Blessings and Protection

China bǎo yòu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This 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.


See Also:  Guardian Angel

Divine Blessing

China bì yòu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is a Chinese way to say "divine blessing."

This can also mean: to bless; to protect; divine protection.

Also written as 庇祐 (variant second character).

Fu Dog / Foo Dog

China shí shī zi
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

While known in the west as fu dogs or foo dogs, these are actually guardian lions.

These are the lion statues traditionally placed at the entrance of Chinese imperial palaces, imperial tombs, temples, and high-ranking officials' homes. These days, you are more likely to see them at the entrance to a fancy Chinese restaurant.

This title actually means, "stone lion(s)".

Love and Protect

China ài hù
Japan ai go
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the Chinese and Japanese Kanji for: to cherish, to treasure, to take care of, to love and protect, provide loving protection, or tender care.

Protection

China bì hù
Japan hi go
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This 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.

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

This word 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.


See Also:  Guardian Angel

Shield

China dùn
Japan tate
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the single character for "shield" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This can also be translated as escutcheon, protection, buckler, or aegis.

Soldier of the Gods

China shén bīng
Japan shin pei
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is a Japanese, Chinese, and Korean title that means "soldier dispatched by a god," or "soldier under the protection of the gods."

This is used more in Japanese (especially in animation) than the other languages.

Under the Protection of the Dragon Saint

China shén lóng bì hù
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This 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."

Warrior Saint / Saint of War

China wǔ shèng
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This Chinese title, Wusheng means, Saint of War.

This is usually a reference to Guan Yu (關羽), also known as Guan Gong (關公).

Some Chinese soldiers still pray to Wusheng for protection. They would especially do this before going into battle.

God Bless You
God Be With You

Japan kami sa ma ga mamo ru you ni
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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.

Guan Gong / Warrior Saint

China guān gōng
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

Guan Gong Warrior Saint

This Chinese title, Guan Gong means, Lord Guan (The warrior saint of ancient China).

While his real name was Guan Yu / 關羽, he is commonly known by this title of Guan Gong / 關公.

Guardian / Defender

China wèi shì
Japan eishi
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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.
