Panda Bear

China xióng māo
Panda Bear Vertical Wall Scroll

熊貓 is how to write "panda" in Chinese. 熊貓 is kind of a generic term that is applied to all pandas. When most people think of panda bears, they are really thinking of the "giant panda" which has black and white fur.

The literal meaning of these characters are "bear cat." Chinese do, in fact, think of pandas as "cat-like bears."

White Bear / Polar Bear

China bái xióng
Japan haguma / shirokuma
White Bear / Polar Bear Vertical Wall Scroll

This can also be the Japanese surname Shirokuma.

These are the Chinese characters and Japanese Kanji for wolverine.

Also known as "gulo gulo," glutton, carcajou, skunk bear, or quickhatch. The wolverine is the largest land-dwelling species of the family Mustelidae (weasel family).

Giant Panda

China dà xióng māo
Giant Panda Vertical Wall Scroll

大熊貓 is how to write "giant panda" in Chinese. 大熊貓 is specific to the "giant panda" which has black and white fur. Not to be confused with other types of smaller pandas in China.

The literal meaning of these characters is "great/big bear cat." Chinese do, in fact, think of pandas as "cat-like bears."


Note: In Japanese, they only express Giant Panda in Katakana, which is ジャイアント パンダ” (Jaianto Panda). So we have not included that for wall scroll orders.

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.
