This can also be translated as "the great nature" or "all of nature."

Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature

China zì rán píng héng
Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature Vertical Wall Scroll

自然平衡 means "nature balanced."

The first two characters mean nature (as in mother nature, or all biological life).
The second two characters mean balance or balanced.

Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature

Japan shizen no cho wa
Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature Vertical Wall Scroll

自然の調和 means "nature in harmony" in Japanese.

The first two Kanji mean nature (as in mother nature, or the natural world).

Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature

Japan shizenkai no kinkou

This is a verbose way to say "nature in balance" in Japanese

The first three Kanji have the meaning of "the natural world" or "the natural kingdom" (kind of like animal kingdom but including plants, and all things biological).
The third character is a Hiragana that acts to connect the two ideas here.
The last two Kanji mean equilibrium or balance.

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 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.
