Eight Black Horses

hēi bā mǎ
Eight Black Horses Scroll

黑八馬 means "eight black horses" in Chinese.

黑八馬 is an unusual title for calligraphy, but several people have searched for it, so we added it.
Eight horses is a sign of success in business in Chinese culture.

ba ju tsu
Bajutsu Scroll

馬術 (Bajutsu) is a Japanese form of military equestrianism.

Bajutsu involves techniques of swordsmanship, tactical advance, archery and even the care of horses.


(Version 2)
tuō mǎ sī
Thomas Scroll

托馬斯 is a second common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Thomas.

There are two common ways to transliterate this name into Chinese. Both sound reasonably close to the English pronunciation of Thomas, so just pick the one that looks best to you. If you like horses, pick this one, as the second character means horse.

mǎ qiú
Polo Scroll

馬球 is the Chinese title of the ancient game of polo.

During the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), the elite and rich would mount their horses and engage in this rigorous sport. It is the only sport of that period where women were also known to play.

The original polo came from Persia and may have been played in China hundreds of years before the Tang popularized it.

The characters "馬球" literally mean "horse ball".

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.
