Collaboration / Cooperation / Synergy

China xié tóng
Japan kyou dou
Collaboration / Cooperation / Synergy Wall Scroll

This Japanese, Chinese, and Korean word means: to cooperate; in coordination with; coordinated; collaborate; collaboration; collaborative; doing together (as equals).

Some will also use this as a short way to express the western idea of synergy (collaboration for a better result). There's a longer word, 協同作用, that adds "action" to this word, and more directly means synergy.

Synergy / Cooperative Interaction

China xié tóng zuò yòng
Japan kyou dou sa you
Synergy / Cooperative Interaction Wall Scroll

協同作用 is probably the best way to express "synergy" in Chinese and Japanese. 協同作用 is not a particularly-common word in either language, so you might want to look at "cooperation."

Cooperation

China xié lì
Japan kyouryoku
Cooperation Wall Scroll

If you look at the second character, which means "strength" or "power," and then you look at the first character, you will see that the first character seems to represent multiple "strengths" together. Thus, you can visually see the meaning of this word as "stronger when working together." The combination of characters that form this word is commonly seen in Japanese Kanji and Korean Hanja but not used in China (however, a Chinese person could probably guess the meaning, and it can be pronounced in Chinese).

It is implied that you are cooperating to create some project or product.

This can also be translated as "joint effort."

Cooperation / Collaboration

China xié zuò
Japan kyou saku
Cooperation / Collaboration Wall Scroll

Cooperation is working together and sharing the load. When we cooperate, we join with others to do things that cannot be done alone. We are willing to follow the rules which keep everyone safe and happy. Together we can accomplish great things.

The first character means "united" or "to coordinate." The second character means "to do," "to make," or "to compose." Knowing this, you can understand why together, these characters create a word that can be defined as "cooperation" in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

It is implied that you are cooperating to create some project or product.

Work Together with One Heart

China qí xīn xié lì
Work Together with One Heart Wall Scroll

This Chinese proverb mean, "to work with a common purpose," "to make concerted efforts," "to pull together," or "to work as one (or as if with one heart)".

Do not fear the task,
cooperation will lead to success

Do not fear strong winds waves; just be sure to row in unison
China bù pà fēng làng dà jiù pà jiǎng bù qí
Do not fear the task, / cooperation will lead to success Wall Scroll

This Chinese proverb literally translates as: Do not fear strong winds [and] high waves; what [one should] worry about whether or not you're rowing in unison.

Figuratively, this means: However difficult the task, the key to success lies in making collective efforts.

I like to translate this as, "Don't sweat the details, just get together and get it done."

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.

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.
