復活 is the Chinese, Japanese and Korean word for resurrection or rebirth. Basically this means "return to life."
It is the term used in most Asian Bibles to refer to the resurrection of Christ. In Japanese, it is sometimes used to mean a Christian Revival. In some context it can mean resuscitation.
復活節 is the Chinese and old Korean way to write Easter.
Easter is not a well-known holiday in China, but Chinese Christians do tend to follow the American tradition of the Easter egg ritual etc. Non-Christians may think it's a celebration of rabbits that can lay eggs.
South Korea has a higher percentage of Christians than any other Asian country, so they celebrate Easter with plenty of enthusiasm.
復活祭 is how the holiday of Easter is written in Japanese.
While not well-understood holiday in Japan (Christians being about 1% of the population), you will find stuffed Easter bunnies at the shops in the Spring.
復活祭 is a less-used way to write Easter in old Korean.

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.
