Blessings on this Home

wǔ fú lín mén
Blessings on this Home Scroll

This literally means, "five good-fortunes arrive [at the] door".

It is understood to mean, "may the five blessings descend upon this home".

These blessings are known in ancient China to be: longevity, wealth, health, virtue, and natural death (living to old age). 五福臨門 is one of several auspicious sayings you might hear during Chinese New Years.

Blessings and Protection

shukufuku to hogo
Blessings and Protection Scroll

祝福と保護 means, "blessings and protection", in Japanese.

Blessings and Protection

bǎo yòu
Blessings and Protection Scroll

保佑 is the more religious and sometimes superstitious word for protection in Chinese. It's sort of a blessing of protection, and is often translated as "bless and protect", "blessing", or "to bless".

This would be used the protection or blessing that a deity (such as God) would bestow upon you. It is not religion-specific in the same way that a language itself cannot be specific to any religion.


祐Note: Sometimes the second character is written in the form shown to the right. Let us know if you have a preference when you place your order.

Blessings and Good Wishes

zhù fú
shukufuku
Blessings and Good Wishes Scroll

祝福 is a nice way to give good wishes to someone.

It can be a general blessing or used to congratulate someone for a special occasion or graduation.

This has a good meaning in Japanese but more appropriate when expressed orally. 祝福 is not a natural selection for a wall scroll if your audience is Japanese.

God Bless You / May God Protect You

shàng dì bǎo yòu
God Bless You / May God Protect You Scroll

上帝保佑 is a blessing exchanged between Chinese Christians.

The first two characters literally mean God (The God of Zion). The second two characters express the idea of giving protection. Another way to translate this is "May God protect you".

Happiness Scroll

幸福 is a general state of "happiness" which can also be translated as truly-blessed, welfare, well-being, or fortunate.

Pursuit of Happiness

zhuī xún xìng fú
Pursuit of Happiness Scroll

追尋幸福 is the best way to translate the English phrase "pursuit of happiness" into Chinese.

The first two characters mean "to pursue", "to track down", or "to search for".

The last two mean happiness, happy, or blessed.

Pursuit of Happiness

koufuku o motome te
Pursuit of Happiness Scroll

幸福を求めて is "Pursuit of Happiness" or "In Search of Happiness" in Japanese.

Here's how the characters break down:
幸福 (koufuku) happiness; blessedness; joy; well-being.
を (o) particle
求め (motome) to want; to seek; to pursue; to request
て (te) particle


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Grace from Heaven / Grace from God

tiān ēn
Grace from Heaven / Grace from God Scroll

天恩 is the deepest way to say "Heaven's Grace" or "God's Grace" in Chinese.

The first character means Heaven or sky (referring in this case to the domain of God).
The second character means grace, blessings, benevolence, favor/favour, acts of kindness, merits, or beneficial influence.

This title can also be defined as:
Blessings of Heaven, Favor of the Emperor, Divination's luckiest day, or blessings of nature. Note: When you see "Emperor" above, keep in mind that the Emperor, like the Pope is theoretically chosen by God, or seen as an emissary or conduit of God in ancient Asian culture. It would only be read that way in a certain context such as, "The Emperor, in his mercy, bestowed upon him Heaven's Grace and the prisoner was set free".


Note: Technically, this is a Japanese word too (pronounced "ten-on") but it’s rarely used in Japan anymore. Therefore, this title is best if your audience is Chinese.

Blessed by Heaven

ten kei
Blessed by Heaven Scroll

天恵 means "Heaven's Blessing", "Blessings from Heaven", or "Blessed by Heaven" in Japanese Kanji.

Depending on the context in which this is used, it can also mean, "gift of nature", or even, "natural resources" (as in Heaven or God bestowed things like oil, iron, gold, and other natural resources upon mankind).

Red Dragon / Vermillion Dragon

zhū lóng
Red Dragon / Vermillion Dragon Scroll

朱龍 is a sophisticated or scholarly way to say, "Red Dragon". 朱龍 is the title you'd expect in ancient Chinese literature.

The first character means red, cinnabar, or vermillion.

The second character means dragon.

It is said that the Vermillion Dragon represents kings that bestow blessings on lakes or bodies of water. This makes more sense in an ancient Chinese context.

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.
