冒險 is another Chinese and Korean word for "Adventure."
冒險 is more of a "risk-taking" version of adventure.
The first character can mean "brave" and "bold." The second character means "dangerous" and "rugged." Together they can be defined as a word meaning "adventure" in Chinese and Korean.
Note: Some dictionaries translate these two characters as "take a risk."
If you lead a life of adventure (like I do), a 探險 wall scroll is for you.
Alone, the first character can mean "to explore," "to search out," or "to scout." The second character holds the meanings of "dangerous" and "rugged." Together these two characters create the word that means "adventure" or "to explore."
探険 is a modern Japanese Kanji version, but it more precisely means exploration or expedition rather than adventure. 探險 is the old/ancient Japanese version used before WWII. Let us know if you want the modern Japanese version instead.
冒険 is a common Japanese way to say "Adventure."
The first character can mean "to risk," "to defy" or "to dare." The second character means "inaccessible place" or "impregnable position." Together, you get the idea of why these two characters mean adventure when put them together in Japanese.
Note: The second character is a morphed Japanese Kanji. The original Chinese version is also available and holds the same root meaning.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
