Sisters at Heart

This is "heart of sisters," "soul sisters," or "sisters of the heart." This can be used for actual sisters to celebrate the heartfelt love they feel. It can even be used by two women who feel a connection as if they are sisters.

Sisterhood / Sisterly Love

Japan shi mai ai

Sisterhood<br>Sisterly Love

This Japanese term means "Sisterhood," "Sisterly Love," or "Sister Love."

Sisters

This is a Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja title for sisters.

Please note: It's kind of an uncommon title for a wall scroll.

Brotherly and Sisterly Love

China shǒu zú qíng

Brotherly and Sisterly Love

This is the love between siblings. When you love, protect, care for, and have a deep bond that only brothers or sisters can.

The actual translation is "Hand and Foot" but it is said the relationship between brothers or sisters is like that of hands and feet. They belong together, and complete the body. Even though this says "hand and foot," it will always be read with the brotherly and sisterly love meaning in Chinese.

Note: During the past 20 years, the "One child policy" in China is slowly making this term obsolete.

Brother and Sister

Japan keishi / kyoudai

Brother and Sister

This means, "brother and sister," in Japanese.

There's not a perfect way to say it in calligraphy but this is probably the best way.

Younger Sister

China mèi
Japan mai / imouto

knob
Younger Sister

This is the single-character for younger sister.

In colloquial Japanese speech, this can be a way to say, darling, dear, honey, or my betrothed (only used when referring to a woman).

In Japanese, this can be the female given name Mai.

In Chinese, you will generally see this used in double form, "妹妹" or "mei mei" when referring to a younger sister.

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 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.
