Ambitious / To Improve Oneself

Advance and Progress
China shàng jìn
Japan jou shin
Ambitious / To Improve Oneself Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese and Japanese Kanji word means to advance; to make progress; to do better; ambitious; to improve oneself; to move forwards.

This can refer to a single person, general things (such as a work project), or a whole country.

In Japanese, this is sometimes used as the given name Joushin.

Chantal

China shàng tǎ ěr
Chantal Vertical Wall Scroll

尚塔爾 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Chantal.

Chante

China shàng té
Chante Vertical Wall Scroll

尚特 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Chante.

Confucius: Universal Education

China zì xíng shù xiū yǐ shàng wú wèi cháng wú huì yān
Confucius: Universal Education Vertical Wall Scroll

This quote from the Analects of Confucius translates as:

For anyone who brings even the smallest token of appreciation, I have yet to refuse instruction.

Another way to put it is: If a student (or potential student) shows just an ounce of interest, desire, or appreciation for the opportunity to learn, a teacher should offer a pound of knowledge.


This was written over 2500 years ago. The composition is in ancient Chinese grammar and phrasing. A modern Chinese person would need a background in Chinese literature to understand this without the aid of a reference.

Family Over Everything

China jiā tíng zhì shàng
Family Over Everything Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese phrase means, "family above all else."

The first two characters mean family, household, or home (they will be read as "family" in this case).

The last two characters mean supreme, paramount, or above all else.

Fancy Nails

(Special Business Name)
China shí shàng jiǎ
Fancy Nails Vertical Wall Scroll

時尚甲 is a special entry for a customer's business name for a nail salon known as "Fancy Nails."


Note: In Japanese Katakana, Fancy Nails would be ファンシー ネイルズ

Fear God

China jìng wèi shàng dì
Fear God Vertical Wall Scroll

敬畏上帝 is probably the best way to translate the Christian English phrase, "Fear God," into Chinese.

The first two characters mean to revere, be in awe of, or a general term of reverence. It can mean fear, but only in the context of respect or fear of authority.

Fighter for God

China shàng dì de dòu shì
Fighter for God Vertical Wall Scroll

上帝的鬥士 means "God's Fighter."

While a lot of people search for "Warrior of God," or "Soldier of God," this is actually the most natural way to say something like this in Chinese.

God is Always With You

God is With Me Always
China shàng dì yǔ nǐ cháng zài
God is Always With You Vertical Wall Scroll

The direct translation of these Chinese characters is "God Together [with] You Always Exist."

Keep in mind that Chinese grammar is sometimes very different from English. This makes perfect sense in Chinese.

Note: The title for God is the first two characters - the other words in the direct translation represent one character each.

God Bless You / May God Protect You

China shàng dì bǎo yòu
God Bless You / May God Protect You Vertical 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."

God is Love

China shàng dì jiù shì ài
God is Love Vertical Wall Scroll

上帝就是愛 is a common way to express "God is Love" in Chinese.

God is my Judge

China shàng dì shì wǒ de fǎ guān

This is not a traditional Chinese phrase. We professionally translated it for a customer's request (in proper Chinese grammar).

God Loves You

China shàng dì ài nǐ
God Loves You Vertical Wall Scroll

上帝愛你 means, "God love you," in Chinese.

God of Zion / God of Abraham

China shàng dì
Japan joutei
God of Zion / God of Abraham Vertical Wall Scroll

上帝 is how Chinese Christians and Jews refer to God, AKA The Judeo-Christian God.

Yes, there are Chinese Jews whose ancestry dates back to Jewish traders on the silk road. They are known as the Kaifeng Jews. Most have left China for Israel now.

There are also plenty of Christians in China of both the Protestant and Catholic variety. However, the churches are basically run by the government, and the Chinese Catholic church does not recognize the Pope.

Oddly, in my experience, I found the Chinese Protestant church to be much less political compared to Baptist and other Protestant churches that I have visited in America.

上帝 is also the typically-used title for God in Japanese.

While you may find this term in old Korean dictionaries, it is an obscure, and rarely-used title for God in modern Korean.

God Give Me Strength

China yuàn shàng dì gěi wǒ lì liàng
God Give Me Strength Vertical Wall Scroll

This is a wish or a prayer that you might call out at a desperate time.

Translated by us for a military serviceman in Iraq - obviously, he may have a need to use this phrase often, though I am not sure where he's going to find a place to hang a wall scroll.

Good Good Study, Day Day Up

China hǎo hǎo xué xí tiān tiān xiàng shàng
Good Good Study, Day Day Up Vertical Wall Scroll

This is a famous proverb by Chairman Mao Zedong that sounds really strange when directly translated into English. I include it in our database of phrases to illustrate how different the construction and grammar can be between Chinese and English. The direct translation is "Good Good Study, Day Day Up." In Chinese, a repeated character/word can often serve to reinforce the idea (like saying "very" or suggesting "a lot of"). So "good good" really means "a lot of good." While "day day" can be better translated as "day in day out." The idea of "up" has a meaning in China of "rising above" or "improving."

After understanding all of this, we come up with a slightly better translation of "With lot of good study, day in day out, we raise above."

The more natural translation of this proverb would be something like, "study hard, and keep improving."

Ultimate Goodness of Water

Quote from Lao Tzu
China shàng shàn ruò shuǐ
Ultimate Goodness of Water Vertical Wall Scroll

This quote is sometimes presented as, "Be like water." However, this is an ancient quote from the great philosopher Lao Tzu. It basically suggests that the ultimate goodness and purity (in the world) is water. Many take this as a suggestion to be like pure/good water.

Heavenly / Celestial

China tiān shàng
Japan tenjou
Heavenly / Celestial Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese, Japanese, and Korean word means celestial or heavenly.

You can directly translate this as "heavens above," or "sky above."

Progress / Ambition

China shàng jìn
Japan joushin
Progress / Ambition Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese and Japanese word means to make progress, to do better, ambition to improve oneself, to move forward, to advance.

This should be romanized as Joushin but is often written Joshin from Japanese. It can also be a given name in Japanese.

Kishan

China jī shàng
Kishan Vertical Wall Scroll

基尚 is the transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Kishan.

Kishan

China jí shàng
Kishan Vertical Wall Scroll

This an alternate transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Kishan. We like this one better because of the way it sounds, and the good meaning. 吉尚 is also a rare but real family name in Chinese culture.

To Know Hardship, One Must Experience It

China bù dāng hé shàng bù zhī tóu lěng
To Know Hardship, One Must Experience It Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese proverb literally translates as: [One who has] not been a monk [does] not know [the feeling of a] cold head.
I need to explain that a Chinese Buddhist monk always has a shaved head, and thus a cold head in winter.

Figuratively, this means: One cannot know the true meaning of hardship until one has experienced it oneself.


This is an idiom in Chinese, so the figurative meaning is what people perceive when they hear or read this phrase. Just as in English, when someone says, "The grass is always greener," one will think about the idea of jealousy, rather than the quality of one's lawn.

Mountain Travels Poem by Dumu

China yuǎn shàng hán shān shí jìng xiá bái yún shēng chù yǒu rén jiā tíng chē zuò ài fēng lín wǎn shuàng yè hóng yú èr yuè huā
Mountain Travels Poem by Dumu Vertical Wall Scroll

This poem was written almost 1200 years ago during the Tang dynasty. It depicts traveling up a place known as Cold Mountain, where some hearty people have built their homes. The traveler is overwhelmed by the beauty of the turning leaves of the maple forest that surrounds him just as night overtakes the day, and darkness prevails. His heart implores him to stop, and take in all of the beauty around him.

First before you get to the full translation, I must tell you that Chinese poetry is a lot different than what we have in the west. Chinese words simply don't rhyme in the same way that English, or other western languages do. Chinese poetry depends on rhythm and a certain beat of repeated numbers of characters.

I have done my best to translate this poem keeping a certain feel of the original poet. But some of the original beauty of the poem in it's original Chinese will be lost in translation.

Far away on Cold Mountain, a stone path leads upwards.
Among white clouds peoples homes reside.
Stopping my carriage I must, as to admire the maple forest at nights fall.
In awe of autumn leaves showing more red than even flowers of early spring.

Hopefully, this poem will remind you to stop, and "take it all in" as you travel through life.
The poet's name is "Du Mu" in Chinese that is: 杜牧.
The title of the poem, "Mountain Travels" is: 山行
You can have the title, poet's name, and even Tang Dynasty written as an inscription on your custom wall scroll if you like.

More about the poet:

Dumu lived from 803-852 AD and was a leading Chinese poet during the later part of the Tang dynasty.
He was born in Chang'an, a city of central China and former capital of the ancient Chinese empire in 221-206 BC. In present day China, his birthplace is currently known as Xi'an, the home of the Terracotta Soldiers.

He was awarded his Jinshi degree (an exam administered by the emperor's court which leads to becoming an official of the court) at the age of 25, and went on to hold many official positions over the years. However, he never achieved a high rank, apparently because of some disputes between various factions, and his family's criticism of the government. His last post in the court was his appointment to the office of Secretariat Drafter.

During his life, he wrote scores of narrative poems, as well as a commentary on the Art of War and many letters of advice to high officials.

His poems were often very realistic, and often depicted every day life. He wrote poems about everything, from drinking beer in a tavern to weepy poems about lost love.

The thing that strikes you most is the fact even after 1200 years, not much has changed about the beauty of nature, toils and troubles of love and beer drinking.

Only God Can Judge Me

China zhǐ yǒu shàng dì néng píng pàn wǒ
Only God Can Judge Me Vertical Wall Scroll

This means, "Only God can judge me" in Chinese.

Pearl in the Palm

China zhǎng shàng míng zhū
Pearl in the Palm Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese proverb literally means, "a pearl in the palm."

Figuratively, this is used to describe, or as a title for, a beloved person. This can especially apply to a daughter.

Serenity Prayer

China shàng dì cì wǒ píng jìng qù jiē shòu wǒ suǒ bù néng gǎi biàn de wǒ yǒng qì qù gǎi biàn wǒ suǒ néng gǎi biàn de bìng wǒ zhì huì qù fēn biàn zhè liǎng zhě
Serenity Prayer Vertical Wall Scroll

This is the serenity prayer, as used by many 12-step programs and support groups.

In Chinese, this says:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Shanae

China shàng nèi
Shanae Vertical Wall Scroll

Shang

Surname
China shàng
Japan nao
Shang Vertical Wall Scroll

尚 is the most common character for the Chinese surname that romanizes as Shang. 尚 is also a name, "Makato" in Japanese and "Sang" in Korean.

尚 is also a word meaning: still; yet; to value; to esteem; furthermore; in addition; greater; further.

Shanghai

China shàng hǎi
Japan shan hai
Shanghai Vertical Wall Scroll

Highest Quality / Top Notch

China shàng děng
Japan joutou
Highest Quality / Top Notch Vertical Wall Scroll

上等 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for highest quality, top-notch, superiority, first-class, or very good.

Trust in God

China xìn kào shàng dì
Trust in God Vertical Wall Scroll

信靠上帝 means "Trust in God," "Faith in God," "Rely upon God" and/or "Believe in God."

Trust in God / In God We Trust

China xiāng xìn shàng dì
Trust in God / In God We Trust Vertical Wall Scroll

相信上帝 means exactly what the title suggests. The first two characters mean "trust" or "believe" and the second two mean "God" (as in the God of Abraham and the God of Zion).

相信上帝 is also how the American phrase "In God We Trust" as seen on U.S. Currency would be translated into Chinese. It would also be correct to say that this means "Believe in God," though in this arrangement/context, one would be more likely to interpret it as "trust."

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.
