xuè yè

Blood Scroll

血液 is the word for blood (liquid blood) in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

Blood Brothers

xuè xiōng dì
chi kyou dai
Blood Brothers Scroll

血兄弟 means "Blood Brothers" in Chinese and Japanese.

Bloodless Victory

bīng bù xuè rèn
Bloodless Victory Scroll

Perhaps a pacifist view or perhaps the best kind of victory; these characters reflect this idea:
The edges of the swords not being stained with blood.

You could also translate it as: Win victory without firing a shot.

The first character means army or force. The second character means without or none. The last two characters mean bloodstained knives. So it represents a returning victorious army without bloodstained knives. 兵不血刃 is the very literal sense of this Chinese proverb. The title definition is more accurate to the way this proverb is understood.

Asking yourself why the direct or literal translation is different?
...Think of compound words in English such as "nevertheless" if we break it apart to "never the less" we will have trouble getting the real definition of "in spite of that". Similar things happen when multiple-characters are used to create a compounded word in Chinese.

Vampire

xī xuě guǐ
kyuu ketsu ki
Vampire Scroll

吸血鬼 is how to say "vampire" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

Quite literally this means "Suck Blood Ghost" or more naturally in English "Ghost Who Sucks Blood". This title is also used for leeches and blood-sucking vermin.

Just like the word "vampire" in English, this title is used in Asian languages colloquially to refer to "cruel exploiters" and especially in China, it can be used to refer to "capitalists exploiting the workers".

Alone on a wall scroll, this will be understood with just the "vampire" or "bloodsucker" meaning.

Sincere Heart

xuě xīn
Sincere Heart Scroll

When you take this word apart, you find the sum is a little different than the parts. The first character means blood and the second means heart. It is important to note that for thousands of years, it was believed that your heart was both your soul and your mind in Asian culture. When you add blood to the heart, it is your whole being - it is pure and clean dedication with your whole soul.

Most Chinese dictionaries define this as sincerity of heart or a MEDICAL TERM!!!
Please think carefully before ordering this selection - it was only added as others have used this for coffee cups and other novelties (though perhaps naively).

Family Bond / Family Ties

ruien
Family Bond / Family Ties Scroll

This Japanese word means affinity or family relationship.

類縁 is about the bond shared by blood within a family or those from the same ancestor.

Family Bond / Family Ties

qīn yuán
Family Bond / Family Ties Scroll

親緣 is a Chinese word that means affinity, family relationship, or consanguinity.

This speaks of the family bonds we have with others that share the same blood or ancestors.

Zhang Fei

zhāng fēi
chou hi
Zhang Fei Scroll

張飛 is the name of General Zhang Fei, of the Shu Kingdom. He was blood-brother of Liu Bei in the semi-historical novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". Zhang Fei is famous for his heroic and fearsome fighting and his love of wine.

In Japanese, this can be the name Chouhi.

The More We Sweat in Training, The Less We Bleed in Battle

píng shí duō liú hàn zhàn shí shǎo liú xuè
The More We Sweat in Training, The Less We Bleed in Battle Scroll

There is more than one way to translate this ancient Chinese military proverb. Here are a few interpretations:

A drop of sweat spent in a drill is a drop of blood saved in war.

More practice will give one a better chance of success in real situation.

The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle.

I heard this many times when I was a U.S. Marine but I had no idea at the time that it was actually an old Chinese proverb.

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.
