You are always a beauty in your lover’s eyes

China qíng rén yǎn lǐ chū xī shī
You are always a beauty in your lover’s eyes

Any woman with affection for Asian art and you will love a gift of this Chinese proverb calligraphy on a wall scroll. She will melt in your arms as you tell her the meaning of these characters.

Contained in this phrase is a reference to the most beautiful woman in Chinese history. Her name was Xi Shi, and she was known to have good looks that need not fine robes or make up. Her charms were so powerful that she brought down an entire kingdom (in a successful effort to bring honor and pride back to her people).

This is a great way to express that the woman in your life is your one love.

Inner Beauty / Beauty of Spirit

China nèi zài měi
Inner Beauty / Beauty of Spirit

This three-character title speaks of beauty on the inside. It's not about outward or physical beauty but rather the inner beauty possessed by someone. This can also be translated as "beauty of spirit."

Inner Beauty / Beauty of Spirit

Japan nai men bi
Inner Beauty / Beauty of Spirit

This three-character title speaks of beauty on the inside. It's not about outward or physical beauty but rather the inner beauty possessed by someone. This can also be translated as "beauty of spirit."

Beauty Shop / Beauty Salon

China měi róng diàn
Beauty Shop / Beauty Salon

美容店 is how to write "Beauty Shop" or "Beauty Salon." If you own such a business, this would make a nice wall scroll to hang up - and many of your Asian customers will be able to read and appreciate it. When traveling in China, you will see signs like this in the window of any place that offers full services of hair styling, manicures, pedicures, and often shampoo with head and back massage.

However, as a handmade wall scroll, this becomes a very fancy piece of artwork that shows the high class of your business (a great sign for your window, if you don't get direct sunlight).

Beauty Salon

China měi róng yuàn
Japan biyouin
Beauty Salon

美容院 means beauty salon, lady's hair parlor, beauty parlor, or hairdressing salon, in Chinese and Japanese.

Beauty: The art of makeup / cosmetics

China měi róng
Japan biyou
Beauty: The art of makeup / cosmetics

In Chinese, this is the title for the art of beauty, as applying makeup or cosmetics to enhance beauty.

Note: In Japanese and Korean, this takes the meaning of beautiful face or beauty of figure or form. Be sure you know who your audience is, and have matched the desired meaning.

Beauty of Nature

Ka-Chou-Fuu-Getsu
Japan ka chou fuu getsu
Beauty of Nature

花鳥風月 is the Japanese Kanji proverb for "Beauties of Nature."

The dictionary definition is, "the traditional themes of natural beauty in Japanese aesthetics."

The Kanji each represents an element of nature that constitute beauty in traditional Japanese art and culture.

The Kanji breakdown:
花 = ka = flower (also pronounced "hana")
鳥 = chou = bird (also pronounced "tori").
風 = fuu = wind (also pronounced "kaze").
月 = getsu = moon (also pronounced "tsuki")

Eternal Beauty

China yǒng héng de měi
Eternal Beauty

永恆的美 is how to write "Eternal Beauty" in Chinese.

Beauty / Beautiful Princess

China yuàn
Japan hime / haru
Beauty / Beautiful Princess

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.

Goddess of Beauty / Beautiful Spirit

China měi shén
Japan mikami
Goddess of Beauty / Beautiful Spirit

In Chinese, this means Goddess of Beauty.

The first character means beauty or beautiful.
The second character means spirit (can also mean god, goddess, or soul).
Some will use this as a short way to say, "Beautiful Spirit."

This has a similar meaning in Japanese but is used more often as a female given name in Japan. As a Japanese given name, it can be pronounced Mikami, Mikan, or Binasu.

Beauty / Beautiful / Handsome

China měi
Japan bi
Beauty / Beautiful / Handsome

美 is often used to describe the beauty of a woman. However, when applied to a man, it can mean handsome. It's also the first character in the word for "beauty salon" which you will see all over China and Japan.

This can be used as the given name for a girl (spell it or say it as "Mei" or "May").

For a bit of trivia: The title for the "USA" in Chinese is "Mei Guo" which literally means "Beautiful Country." This name was bestowed at a time before Chairman Mao came to power and decided that China didn't like the USA anymore (even though we fought together against the Japanese in WWII). But these days, Chinese people love Americans (but have distaste for American politics and policy). But I digress...

美 is also how "Beautiful" is written in Japanese Kanji and Korean Hanja. 美 can also mean: very satisfactory; good; to be pleased with oneself; abbreviation for the USA; fine; handsome; admirable; madhura; sweet; pleasant.

Truth Goodness and Beauty

China zhēn shàn měi
Japan shin zen bi
Truth Goodness and Beauty

真善美 means truth, goodness and beauty in Chinese and Japanese.

These can also be read as "the true, the good, and the beautiful."

In Japanese, this can be the female given name Mazemi or the personal name Shinzenbi.

Inner Beauty / Inner Wisdom

China nèi xiù
Inner Beauty / Inner Wisdom

內秀 is an interesting word in Chinese that simultaneously means inner beauty and inner wisdom.

Some will translate it as "intelligent, but unassuming."
It's about having amazing abilities or traits on the inside which are not immediately obvious on the outside.

Beautiful Girl

China měi lì de gū niang
Beautiful Girl

美麗的姑娘 is the best way to express "beautiful girl" in Chinese.


See Also:  Beautiful Woman | Beauty

Beautiful Woman

China měi lì de nǚ rén
Beautiful Woman

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.


See Also:  Beautiful Girl | Beauty

Beautiful Soul

Japan bi tamashi
Beautiful Soul

美魂 is a very short or abbreviated way to say, "Beautiful Soul" in Japanese.

There is a longer version that might be a little more natural and also closer to the intended meaning. This short title is often translated awkwardly as, "Beauty Soul" from Japanese.

Beautiful Princess

China měi lì de gōng zhǔ
Beautiful Princess

美麗的公主 is how to write beautiful princess in Chinese. The first two characters mean feminine beauty, or rather a way to say beautiful that only applies to women. The middle character is just a connecting character. The last two characters mean princess.


See Also:  Queen

Beautiful Soul

China měi lì de líng hún
Beautiful Soul

美麗的靈魂 means, "Beautiful Soul" in Chinese.

The first two characters mean beautiful, beauty, or gorgeous.
The middle character connects the ideas (a possessive article).
The last two characters mean soul or spirit.

Beautiful

China měi lí
Japan birei
Beautiful

美麗 is a two-character word used often in Chinese, old Korean, and ancient Japanese to express beauty.

I've had a few requests for a "two-character beautiful" and this is by far the best word. 美麗 is not a common word for an Asian person to want on a wall scroll. However, you will see it commonly used as an adjective in phrases, stories, and titles throughout magazines and signage in China.

美麗 can also be translated as gorgeous or lovely.

Note: 美麗 is not common in modern Japan.

Beautiful Life / Life in Perfect Harmony

China hé měi
Japan wa mi
Beautiful Life / Life in Perfect Harmony

These two characters create a word that means, "harmonious" or, "in perfect harmony." The deeper meaning or more natural translation would be something like, "beautiful life."

The first character means peace and harmony.

The second character means beautiful. But in this case, when combined with the first character, beautiful refers to being satisfied with what you have in your life. This can be having good relations, good feelings, comfort, and having enough (with no feeling of wanting).


Note: In Japanese, this is often used as the name "Wami." This title is probably more appropriate if your audience is Chinese.

Beautiful Sight

China měi jǐng
Japan bi kei
Beautiful Sight

This can be translated as beautiful view, beautiful scenery, or beautiful sight.

Note: Not a commonly used word in modern Japanese.

Elegant / Exquisite / Grace

China měi miào
Japan bimyou
Elegant / Exquisite / Grace

Beyond elegant and exquisite elegance, this is also the word used to say "beautiful" or "marvelous" when referring to a work of art.

Can also be translated as exquisiteness, gracefulness.

Note: Not a commonly used word in Japanese.

Princess

Japan oujo
Princess

王女 is a Japanese title that means princess.

Strong and Beautiful

China jiàn měi
Japan takemi
Strong and Beautiful

We don't really have a word like this in English but these two characters create a word that means "strong and beautiful." It could also be translated as "healthy and beautiful."

Note: 健美 is a word in Chinese and Korean but it's also the family name Takemi in Japanese. The characters hold the same meaning in Japanese but It's kind of like having the English name Stillwell, when few people would perceive the meanings of still and well.

Beautiful Clear Sky

Japan nihonbare
Beautiful Clear Sky

This Japanese Kanji title means beautiful weather, clear and cloudless sky, or clear weather. It's a little odd but if you literally-translated this phrase, it says, "Japanese weather," as if that was an indication of perfect weather (maybe a little arrogant on behalf of Japan - I've experienced a monsoon there, which was unpleasant).

Beautiful Virtue

China měi dé
Japan bitoku
Beautiful Virtue

美德 written in Chinese or Korean Hanja can also mean "grace of character" or "noble virtue."


徳There is a slight variation in the modern Japanese Kanji form of the second character. If you want the modern Japanese version, please click on the special Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above. Note that the traditional Chinese form is still readable and understood by Japanese people (it's the ancient Japanese form anyway).

Beautiful Heart / Beautiful Mind

Japan utsukushii kokoro
Beautiful Heart / Beautiful Mind

美しい心 means, "beautiful heart" or "beautiful mind," in Japanese.

The word for "heart" also means "mind" and sometimes "soul" in ancient Asia.


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

Beautiful Mind

China měi lì xīn líng
Beautiful Mind

美麗心靈 means, "Beautiful Mind" in Chinese.

美麗心靈 is also the Chinese title of the 2001 movie of the same name.

Beautiful Soul

Japan utsukushii tamashii
Beautiful Soul

美しい魂 is a common way to write "Beautiful Soul" in Japanese.


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

Life is Good / Life is Beautiful

China shēng huó měi hǎo
Life is Good / Life is Beautiful

生活美好 means "life is good" in Chinese.

The first two characters mean "life" or "living."

The last two characters mean "good" or "beautiful."

Beautiful Heart / Beautiful Spirit

China měi lì de xīn líng
Beautiful Heart / Beautiful Spirit

美麗的心靈 means beautiful heart, beautiful mind, or beautiful spirit in Chinese.

Beautiful Spirit

Japan utsukushi seishin
Beautiful Spirit

美しい精神 is a common way to write "Beautiful Spirit" in Japanese.


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

The Good Life / Beautiful Life

China měi hǎo de shēng huó
The Good Life / Beautiful Life

In Chinese, this means "Beautiful Life," or "The Good Life."

Life is Good / Life is Beautiful

Japan jinsei wa subarashii
Life is Good / Life is Beautiful

This means "life is good," "life is great," or "life is beautiful" in Japanese.

The first two characters mean "life" (as in your or a human lifespan).

The third character kind of means "is."

The last five characters are a long adjective that means wonderful, splendid, and/or magnificent. In the context of life it reads more like good or beautiful.


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

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.
