Eagle / Falcon / Hawk

Eagle / Falcon / Hawk Scroll

鷹 is the way to write eagle, falcon, or hawk in Chinese.

It means hawk or falcon in Japanese Kanji, and simply "eagle" in old Korean Hanja. Though we have different words for them in English, eagles, falcons, and hawks are all seen as the same general type of bird in Asian languages.

If you are looking for the Dutch surname Valk, or the German surname Falco by meaning, this would be a good character for you.


There are other multi-character words (most of them contain this character) which express different specific species of birds of prey (bald eagle, osprey, golden eagle, etc). If you need a more specific title, just contact me.

Black Eagle / Condor

鷲 is the way to write black eagle, or condor in Chinese.

It means eagle (sometimes vulture) in Japanese Kanji. 鷲 hasn't been in common use in Korean for hundreds of years, so it's hard to say what bird it represented in old Korean Hanja.

There are other multi-character words which express different specific species of birds of prey (bald eagle, osprey, golden eagle, etc).

The Eagle Claw School Scroll

鷹爪派 is the title of a Chinese martial arts style known as "The Eagle Claw School".

It is believed this style was developed by General Yue Fei in the early 12th Century.

Eagle Claw Overturning Fist

Eagle Claw Overturning Fist Scroll

鷹爪翻子拳 is the title of a Chinese martial arts style known as "Ying Zhua Fan Zi Quan" or "Eagle Claw Overturning Fist".

This style was derived from a combination of 鷹爪派 (Eagle Claw School) and 子母拳 (Son-Mother Fist). The title "son-mother" may seem odd, but it refers to a fist or punch seemingly coming out of another fist or punch. In modern times, 子母彈 is a title for "cluster bomb" (bombs coming out of another bomb).

Griffin / Gryphon

yīng tóu shī
Griffin / Gryphon Scroll

鷹頭獅 is the Chinese title for a Griffin.

Griffin This refers to the legendary creature with the head, talons, and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion. Sometimes also spelled Gryphon or Griffon. From the Greek γρύφων or γρύπων, or Latin Gryphus.

This Chinese title, 鷹頭獅, literally means, "Eagle Head Lion".

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 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.
