Wolf Vertical Wall Scroll

狼 is the character used to represent the elusive animal known as the wolf in both Chinese and Japanese.

If you are a fan of the wolf or the wolf means something special to you, this could make a great addition to your wall.

Do keep in mind, that much like our perception of wolves in the history of western culture, eastern cultures do not have a very positive view of wolves (save the scientific community and animal lovers). The wolf is clearly an animal that is misunderstood or feared the world over.

狼 is seldom used alone in Korean Hanja, but is used in a compound word that means utter failure (as in a wolf getting into your chicken pen - or an otherwise ferocious failure). Not a good choice if your audience is Korean.

Black Wolf

China hēi láng
Black Wolf Vertical Wall Scroll

黑狼 is how the title Black Wolf is written in Chinese.

黑狼 is not a common term in Chinese but will be understood.

Lone Wolf

China dú láng
Lone Wolf Vertical Wall Scroll

獨狼 is literally "lone wolf" in Chinese.


China láng dùn
Randolph Vertical Wall Scroll

狼盾 is the meaning in Chinese for the name Randolph. These two characters mean, "shield of the wolf."

Literally: Wolf Shield.


China láng rén
Werewolf Vertical Wall Scroll

狼人 is werewolf in Chinese.


Japan ookamiotoko
Werewolf Vertical Wall Scroll

狼男 is the most common title for werewolf in Japanese Kanji.

Sometimes, Japanese will also use the title 狼人間 for werewolf.

Wolf Spirit
Soul of a Wolf

China láng hún
Japan routama / ookami tamashii
Wolf Spirit / Soul of a Wolf Vertical Wall Scroll

狼魂 is kind of an unusual title in Chinese and Japanese. But many people have searched for this title so we added it. The wolf is not usually seen in a positive light in Asian culture, so this may not be the best title to label yourself.

Lone Wolf

Japan ippiki ookami
Lone Wolf Vertical Wall Scroll

一匹狼 is literally "lone wolf." It suggests you are a "loner" or a "self-reliant person." It can be taken with both positive and negative aspects.

Hunt Foxes with Stealth, Hunt Wolves in the Open

China àn dǎ hú li míng dǎ láng
Hunt Foxes with Stealth, Hunt Wolves in the Open Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese proverb literally translates as: Hunt foxes stealthily, [and] hunt wolves openly [just as they themselves do].

Figuratively, this means:
Different opponents require different appropriate strategies.

This is a suggestion that you should know your enemy, and know that each enemy is different, that therefore requires a specialized approach (attack).

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.
