We are taking a family vacation during this Thanksgiving week. Anything you order now will be reserved for you, and shipped on Monday Nov 27th.
We have many options to create artwork with the Chinese characters / Asian symbols / Japanese Kanji for Butterfly on a wall scroll or portrait.
If you want to create a cool Butterfly Asian character tattoo, you can purchase that on our Chinese and Japanese Tattoo Image Service page and we'll help you select from many forms of ancient Asian symbols that express the idea of Butterfly.
蝴蝶 is the long word for "butterfly" in Chinese.
If you love butterflies, this is the wall scroll for you.
蝶 is the simplest way to write "butterfly" in Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
If you are looking at the Chinese pronunciation and Romanization, please note this is not pronounced like the English "die."
It actually sounds like "dee-ah." (Chinese Romanization does not exactly follow English or Latin pronunciation of Roman letters).
The following table may be helpful for those studying Chinese or Japanese...
|Title||Characters||Romaji(Romanized Japanese)||Various forms of Romanized Chinese|
|Butterfly||蝴蝶||hú dié / hu2 die2 / hu die / hudie||hu tieh / hutieh|
|Butterfly||蝶||chou / cho||dié / die2 / die||tieh|
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.
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.
