Information about caring for your wall scroll

This wall scroll is discounted because of a very minor line in the upper silk panel that only appears if the light hits it at a certain angle. There is also a hair from a mounting brush under the paper panel, but you'd never notice that if I did not tell you. Big bargain here!

Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight
Japanese Calligraphy Scroll


This Japanese proverb relays the vicissitudes of life. Some would more naturally translate it into English as "Always rising after a fall or repeated failures".

Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight - Japanese Philosophy Wall Scroll close up view

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

The first Kanji is literally "7". The second means "fall down" (sometimes this Kanji means "turn around", "revolve" or "turn over", but in this case, it's holds the meaning of "fall"). The third is "8". And the last is "get up", "rouse", or "rise".

Basically if you fail 7 times, you should recover from those events and be prepared to rise an 8th time. This is also applies if it is the world or circumstances that knock you down seven times...
...just remember that you have the ability to bounce back from any kind of adversity.

Note: This can be pronounced two ways. One is "shichi ten hakki". The other is "nana korobi ya oki".


If you click on the "Add to Cart" button, you will get the exact wall scroll pictured here, created by calligrapher Li Dan-Qing of Beijing.

All of our Asian calligraphy scrolls are hand painted with special ink on xuan paper and then the wall scroll is built by hand using rice paper, silk, wood etc.

Asian calligraphy is only practiced by those with a keen and agile hand. It is an art that dates back thousands of years, and great artists, writers, and poets are often admired for their calligraphy ability and style.

This hanging scroll is really nice since it doesn't require framing. Just hang it on your wall as Asian people have done for centuries.

Want to customize your wall scroll? Just click on the "Select and Customize" button below and select from options for colors of paper and silk. You can also select a famous master-calligrapher which will allow you to select from several styles of calligraphy, more color choices, and larger sizes.
