There’s No Place Like Home

China jīn wō yín wō bù rú zì jǐ de gǒu wō
There’s No Place Like Home Wall Scroll

This Chinese slang proverb means: Golden house, [or a] silver house, not as good as my own dog house.

It's basically saying that even a house made of gold or silver is not as good as my own home (which may only be suitable for a dog but it's mine).

No Place Like Home

China zài jiā qiān rì hǎo chū mén yī shí nán
No Place Like Home Wall Scroll

This Chinese proverb literally means, "At home, one can spend a thousand days in comfort but spending a day away from home can be challenging."

Figuratively, this means, "There's no place like home," or roughly a Chinese version of "Home sweet home."

Feel at Ease Anywhere / The World is My Home

China sì hǎi wéi jiā
Feel at Ease Anywhere / The World is My Home Wall Scroll

This literally reads, "Four Seas Serve-As [my/one's] Home."

Together, 四海 which literally means "four seas" is understood to mean, "the whole world" or "the seven seas." It's presumed to be an ancient word, from back when only four seas were known - so it equates to the modern English term, "seven seas."

This can be translated or understood a few different ways:
To regard the four corners of the world all as home.
To feel at home anywhere.
To roam about unconstrained.
To consider the entire country, or the world, to be one's own.

Where there’s a will there’s a way

persevere and you will succeed
China yǒu zhì jìng chéng
Where there’s a will there’s a way Wall Scroll

This Chinese proverb means, "persevere and you will succeed."

It's very much like the English idiom, "where there's a will, there's a way."

Family / Home

China jiā
Japan ei / uchi / ke
Family / Home Wall Scroll

家 / 傢 is the single-character that means family in Chinese and Japanese. It can also mean home or household depending on context.

Hanging this on your wall suggests that you put "family first."

Pronunciation varies in Japanese depending on context. When pronounced "uchi" in Japanese, it means home but when pronounced "ke," it means family.


傢Note that there is an alternate form of this character. It has an additional radical on the left side but no difference in meaning or pronunciation. The version shown above is the most universal, and is also ancient/traditional. The image shown to the right is only for reference.

Make Guests Feel at Home

Home away from home
China bīn zhì rú guī
Make Guests Feel at Home Wall Scroll

This Chinese phrase suggests that a good host will make guests feel like they are returning home or are as comfortable as they would be at their own home.

賓至如歸 is also the Chinese equivalent of, "a home away from home," and is used by Chinese hotels, guest houses, and inns to suggest the level of their hospitality will make you feel at home during your stay.

Home of the Dragon

China lóng zhī jiā
Home of the Dragon Wall Scroll

Added by special request of a customer. This phase is natural in Chinese but it is not a common or ancient title.

The first character is dragon.
The second is a possessive modifier (like making "dragon" into "dragon's").
The third character means home (but in some context can mean "family" - however, here it would generally be understood as "home").

Home of the Black Dragon

China hēi lóng zhī jiā
Home of the Black Dragon Wall Scroll

Added by special request of a customer. This phase is natural in Chinese but it is not a common or ancient title.

The first character is black.
The second is dragon.
The third is a possessive modifier (like making "dragon" into "dragon's").
The fourth character means home (but in some context can mean "family" - however, here it would generally be understood as "home").

Home of the Auspicious Golden Dragon

China jīn ruì xiáng lóng zhī jiā
Home of the Auspicious Golden Dragon Wall Scroll

This "home golden auspicious dragon" title was added by special request of a customer.

The first character means gold or golden.
The second and third characters hold the meaning of auspiciousness and good luck.
The fourth character is dragon.
The fifth is a possessive modifier (like making "dragon" into "dragon's").
The last character means home (but in some context can mean "family" - however, here it would generally be understood as "home").

Note: The word order is different than the English title, because of grammar differences between English and Chinese. This phrase sounds very natural in Chinese in this character order. If written in the English word order, it would sound very strange and lose its impact in Chinese.


Note: Korean pronunciation is included above, but this has not been reviewed by a Korean translator.

Home is where the heart is

China jiā yóu xīn shēng
Home is where the heart is Wall Scroll

This old Chinese proverb is roughly equal to the English idiom "Home is where the heart is." If you know Chinese, you may recognize the first character as home and the third as the heart.

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.
