Once in a Lifetime

Once in a Lifetime - Japanese Kanji Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This Japanese title can be translated as "for this time only", "chance meeting", "one meeting, one opportunity", "never again", or "one chance in a lifetime". There is a suggestion that because it's a fleeting chance, one should cherish it as such.

The characters literally mean "one time one meeting" - of course, the Kanji characters have meaning far beyond a direct translation like this.

Some might use this proverb to talk of an opportunity that presents itself just once in your life. It could also be the single chance-meeting with your true soul mate. Basically an expression for any event that might happen once in a lifetime.

This is primarily a Japanese title, however, there is also a Traditional Chinese (and old Korean) version of this proverb. Just the last character is different.


About this artwork...

The materials used include special calligraphy paper and ink. The artwork was sent to our workshop in Beijing where we created a handmade scroll. By building the wall scroll at our own workshop, we save you a lot of money.


About the artist...

This is authentic Japanese calligraphy by a calligrapher whose pen name is Kougetsu. Kougetsu is a high-quality calligrapher from Japan, offering her work at a bargain price. You would easily pay $230 or more for the same quality of Japanese calligraphy and wall scroll mounting if purchased in Japan. Famous calligrapher's often demand $2500 or more, without a perceived increase in quality.

Therefore, this very nice, authentic Japanese calligraphy wall scroll is a true bargain, and allows you to get "Japanese quality" at an affordable price.
