This means "Soldier" but more specifically, a rank-and-file soldier (a private or troop - you could say a ground-pounder). Our other entry for "solider / serviceman" is probably better for a wall scroll (since someday, you will be promoted).
Note: In Japanese, they use these characters in opposite order to create the same meaning word. In that order, it's pronounced "heishi" in Japanese. Just let us know if you want it in Japanese Kanji order when you place your order.
This means "American Soldier" or literally "American Military Person." This can also be translated as, "American military personnel," or "American serviceman." Gender is not specified in this title, so it's appropriate for male or female soldiers.
This way to express "Marine" as in an individual "Soldier of the Sea" in Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja characters (not to be confused with Korean Hangul).
Breaking down each character, this means:
Please note that this Japanese/Korean version kind of means "sailor" or "navy" in Chinese.
See Also: Military
This means, "Warrior of God" or "Soldier of God" in Japanese.
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.
This is the Chinese title for a military veteran.
The first two characters mean, "retired from the ranks," or discharged.
The last two characters mean, serviceman, soldier, or military personnel.
This is "soldier of fortune" in Chinese. It can also be read as, "mercenary" or "hired gun."
This is "soldier of fortune" in Japanese. It can also be read as, "lucky adventurer" or "adventurer who takes advantage of troubled times."
This is a strange title for a wall scroll but it may suit you if you see yourself as a warrior monk. This title is not commonly used but will be understood in both Chinese and Japanese. It can also be read as "armed monks."
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.
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.
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.
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.
