Woman

The ancient way to say Woman

jīn guó
Woman Scroll

巾幗 is the very old way to say woman in Chinese.

A common title ancient China, this actually refers to the scarf or head wrapping worn by virtually all women at that time.

巾幗 is kind of a cool way to say Woman now. The actual gender character alone on a wall scroll would actually just look like a fancy sign for the woman's restroom (WC).
女If you are curious, the character to the right directly means female or woman. 巾幗 is useful information if you are a woman in need of a toilet in China.

Woman of Strong Character / Woman Hero

nǚ jié
joketsu
Woman of Strong Character / Woman Hero Scroll

女傑 can mean brave woman, heroine, lady of character, distinguished woman, outstanding woman, and sometimes prominent woman.

Some people might use this to give a title to women like Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks, Queen Elizabeth the First, Joan of Arc, Mulan Fa, Yevdokiya Nikolayevna Zavaliy, Harriet Tubman, Anne Frank, Clara Barton, and Jane Eyre.

I use it for a woman like Araceli Segarra (the first woman from Spain to climb Mt. Everest) and gave one of my daughters the middle name of Araceli.

Strong Woman

nǚ qiáng rén
Strong Woman Scroll

女強人 is the best way to say "strong woman" or "strong and independent woman" in Chinese.

Grammar in China is a bit different, so these three characters literally read as "female strength person" or "woman strong person". This might sound funny in English but this is a natural-sounding title in Chinese.

Strong-Minded Woman

reppu
Strong-Minded Woman Scroll

烈婦 is a Japanese title for a strong-minded woman, virtuous woman, or heroine.

In some context, it can refer to a pure or chaste woman.

Woman Hero / Heroine

jīn guó yīng xióng
Woman Hero / Heroine Scroll

巾幗英雄 is a cool and somewhat ancient way to say woman hero in Chinese. 巾幗英雄 is used in modern times to refer to an outstanding woman or a woman with great accomplishments.

In the old days, it was a title for a woman warrior (oh, did I mention that there were great female generals who led huge armies into battle in ancient China?)

kenjo
Wise Woman Scroll

賢女 is a Japanese title for a wise woman or clever lady.

Whore / Mysterious Woman

Danger: Means prostitute in Japanese!

xuán rén
kurouto
Whore / Mysterious Woman Scroll

This literally means "Mysterious Person/Woman".

In Japanese, this is associated with a "geisha", which matches this definition of "mysterious woman". However, this is the colloquial way to say "professional geisha" or "expert prostitute" in Japanese. It, therefore, might not be what you want on your wall.


Notes: This is a "Japanese only" term, though a Chinese person who sees these characters will think of a geisha or an alluring Japanese female musician.
While not often seen in Korean Hanja, this would mean a "dark woman," as in a woman that you cannot easily see through.

shū nǚ
shukujo
Wise Woman Scroll

淑女 is an ancient title for a wise and virtuous woman or lady

In Japan, this can be a female given name, Kiyome.

Beautiful Woman

měi lì de nǚ rén
Beautiful Woman Scroll

美麗的女人 is the best and most polite way to express "beautiful woman" in Chinese.

Note: Some people may like the simple 2-character 美女 way to express this but there are some bad connotations with that, so better to stay with this longer and more respectful title.

Beautiful Woman Proverb

chén yú luò yàn
chin gyo raku gan
Beautiful Woman Proverb Scroll

沈魚落雁 is an old proverb that literally means, "fish sink, goose alights".

...But this takes some explaining. 沈魚落雁 is a proverb from Zhuangzi (莊子) who lived in the late 4th century BC.

This figuratively refers to female beauty that is so captivating that even the birds and beasts take notice.

Perhaps a better way to and more accurate way to describe this is to say that it speaks of the charms of a uniquely beautiful woman who is so beautiful that fish stay on the bottom of the water, and flying wild geese fall from the sky in shame.

This proverb is so famous that it is also known and used in Japan (same characters, different pronunciation).


Note: This can also be written 沉魚落雁 instead of 沈魚落雁 (just the first character varies slightly).

Woman’s Association

fujinkai
Woman’s Association Scroll

婦人會 is a Japanese title for women's group or association.

Girl Power / Woman Power

nǚ lì
onna ryoku
Girl Power / Woman Power Scroll

This can be read as "girl power", "woman power", "women empowerment" or "female strength".

女力 is kind of a strange or unofficial title in Chinese and Japanese. At least, it's not common for a wall scroll.

This should be "onna ryoku" in Japanese but I found some who suggest it should be "me riki".

Beauty / Beautiful Princess

yuàn
hime / haru
Beauty / Beautiful Princess Scroll

媛 means, a beauty; beautiful (woman); princess; young lady of noble birth; girl; small & lovely.

媛 is used a bit more commonly in Chinese than Japanese.


Note: This can be the female given name "Hime" in Japanese.

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.

single-character wall scroll.

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.
