American

Person from the USA
China méi guó rén
American Vertical Wall Scroll

美國人 means "American" or literally "American Person" in Chinese.

American Soldier / American Serviceman

China méi guó jūn rén
American Soldier / American Serviceman Vertical Wall Scroll

美國軍人 means "American Soldier" or literally "American Military Person."

This can also be translated as, "American military personnel," or "American serviceman." Gender is not specified in this title, so it's appropriate for male or female soldiers.

American Football

China měi shì gǎn lǎn qiú
American Football Vertical Wall Scroll

美式橄欖球 is the Chinese title for "American football" (not to be confused with international football known as soccer in the USA).

If you are a player or fan of American football, this would make a great wall scroll for your home.

The first two characters mean "American style."
The last three characters mean football or rugby (a game involving an oblong or ovoid ball).
The "American" adjective is needed in this title to differentiate from Canadian football, Australian rules football, and rugby.

American Football

Japan a me ri kan fu tto bo ru
American Football Vertical Wall Scroll

アメリカンフットボール is the full/long title for "American football" in Japanese Katakana.

It is "Amerikan Futtoboru" which is supposed to sound like "American Football."


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.


See Also:  Soccer

American Samoa

China měi shǔ sà mó yà
American Samoa Vertical Wall Scroll

美屬薩摩亞 is the Chinese name for the territory of American Samoa (formerly known as Eastern Samoa).

This should not be confused with Independent Somoa which is to the west.

If you want just a general "Samoa" title, just use the plain "Samoa" entry, as it does not actually designate western, eastern, American, or independent.

American Football

Japan ame futou
American Football Vertical Wall Scroll

アメフト is a short word that means "American football" in Japanese.

It is supposed to sound like an abbreviated version, "ame futo" which sounds like "ah-may foot-oh" (American Football).

There's not a great standard way to say "football" in Japanese, as the sport is not popular in Japan. Other Japanese terms for football can be confused with soccer or rugby.


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Native American / Indian

China yìn dì ān
Native American / Indian Vertical Wall Scroll

印第安 is the Chinese title for (American) Indian or Native American.

For disambiguation, this refers only to indigenous people North America.

印第安 is a transliteration, so it is meant to sound like the English word "Indian" using Chinese sounds.

印第安 is not a common selection for a calligraphy wall scroll.

North American Opossum / Possum

China běi měi fù shǔ
North American Opossum / Possum Vertical Wall Scroll

北美負鼠 is the full title for North American Opossum (aphesis spelling: Possum). The first two characters mean "North American" as an adjective. The third character means "carries" and refers to the marsupial pouch. The last character means "rat." You could say the literal translation is "marsupial rat."

Chinese opossums vary from the North American variety. If you were to use the last two characters alone, it may suggest the species native to China.

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 nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

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.

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.
