Flowers

(family name)
China f lo ?r s?
Flowers Vertical Wall Scroll

???? is the transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the family name Flowers.


This sounds like "Flowers" in Mandarin Chinese but does not mean flowers in any way, shape or form. I strongly suggest the single character which means "flower" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

Flowers Bloom and Flowers Wither

China hu? k?i hu? xi
Flowers Bloom and Flowers Wither Vertical Wall Scroll

???? is a complete proverb that lightly speaks of the cycle of life, or how things come and go in life. It is used as a metaphor to suggest that youth is a temporary state, which in time will pass.

This can also be used to suggest that fortunes can come and go (everything is temporary).

Note: There are two versions of this proverb which are very similar. The other uses a word that means fall instead of wither.

Flowers Bloom and Flowers Fall

Japan hana wa sa ki hana wa chi ru
Flowers Bloom and Flowers Fall Vertical Wall Scroll

This Japanese proverb is about the cycle of life, or how things come and go in life.

This can be used to suggest that youth, fortune, and life can come and go (everything is temporary).


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

Flowers Fall / The End Comes

China hu? s
Flowers Fall / The End Comes Vertical Wall Scroll

These two characters mean flower fall (closes and loses its petals). It suggests nearing the end of something. A time that some might call "The sunset of life." ?? often follows "flower open" to talk of the cycle of life.

We offer this as a possible companion to a "flower open" scroll (to be placed side by side, or at either side of a doorway to say "things come and go" - a cool metaphor for a doorway). If placed in a doorway, it could be used as a suggestion to your guests that things bloom when they arrive through your door but wither when they leave (a great compliment).

Flowers Bloom and Flowers Fall

Flowers Bloom and Flowers Fall Vertical Wall Scroll

???? is a complete proverb that lightly speaks of the cycle of life, or how things come and go in life. It is used as a metaphor to suggest that youth is a temporary state, which in time will pass.

This can also be used to suggest that fortunes can come and go (everything is temporary).

Note: There are two versions of this proverb which are very similar. The other uses a word that means wither instead of fall.

Opening / Blooming Flowers

China k?i hu?
Japan kai ka
Opening / Blooming Flowers Vertical Wall Scroll

These two characters literally mean opening flowers (a verb). ?? is also associated with Springtime, the beginning of something, or youth.

If you like flowers and the Springtime, this is a great selection for you.

In Korean Hanja, this can be a metaphor for achieving enlightenment or becoming civilized (blooming civilization).

In Flowers the Cherry Blossom, In Men the Samurai

Japan hana wa sakuragi hito wa bushi
In Flowers the Cherry Blossom, In Men the Samurai Vertical Wall Scroll

This Japanese proverb simply reads, "[In] Flowers it's Cherry Blossoms, [In] Men it's Warriors."

???????? is meant to say that of all the flowers in the world, the cherry blossom is the best. And of all men in the world, the Samurai or Warrior is the best

This proverb has been around for a long time. It's believed to have been composed sometime before the Edo Period in Japan (which started in 1603).

Some will drop one syllable and pronounce this, "hana wa sakura hito wa bushi." That's "sakura" instead of "sakuragi," which is like saying "cherry blossom" instead of "cherry tree."


The third character was traditionally written as ?. But in modern Japan, that became ?. You may still see ? used from time to time on older pieces of calligraphy. We can do either one, so just make a special request if you want ?.


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

Rose Flowers Given, Frangrance Remains on Hands of Giver

China zng rn mi gu? sh?u li y xi?ng
Rose Flowers Given, Frangrance Remains on Hands of Giver Vertical Wall Scroll

This proverb has been translated several ways:

1. Roses given, fragrance in hand.

2. You present others roses, fragrance remains.

3. The fragrance of the rose always remains on the hand of those that bestow them.

4. A little bit of fragrance always clings to the hands which give the flowers

However, this literally translates as, "Give someone rose flowers, [your] hands keep [the] remaining fragrance."

Flowers / Blooming / Splendid / China

China hu
Japan ririka
Korea ?
Flowers / Blooming / Splendid / China Vertical Wall Scroll

? is really open to interpretation. ? meant flowers or blooming in ancient China. It still has that meaning in Japanese, and Buddhist context.

In modern China, this means glorious, beautiful, splendid, magnificent, or the best part of something. It can also refer to the country of China or something Chinese (such as people - overseas Chinese are often called "hua ren"). ? is also a surname in China.

In Japanese, this can be the female given name "Ririka." It's also the short name for a certain kind of playing cards in Japan.

In Korean, This can be the surname "Hwa." While it also means splendid, flowery, or the country of China in Korean.

Holding Flowers with Subtle Smile

An idiom for heart-to-heart communication
China ni?n hu wi xio
Japan nenge misho
Holding Flowers with Subtle Smile Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese, Korean, and Japanese Buddhist title relays the idea of "heart-to-heart communication," or "thought transference."

The literal translation is, "holding a flower and subtly smiling," or "the holding of a flower with a subtle smile." It is the visual act and emotion that communicates more volumes than words can say.

Wisteria / Wistaria

China z? tng
Wisteria / Wistaria Vertical Wall Scroll

?? is the Chinese name of the climbing woody vines of the genus Wisteria in the pea family featuring purplish or white flowers.

Lotus

China h hu?
Lotus Vertical Wall Scroll

?? is one of two ways to write/say "lotus" or "lily" in Chinese.

It will make a nice wall scroll if you are fond of lotus flowers, and/or lotuses have a special meaning to you.

China hu? li? ji
Japan karyuukai
 Vertical Wall Scroll

This literally means "Flower Willow World/Kingdom."

In Japanese, this means "The Realm of the Geisha" or "World of the Geisha." I suppose there is a presumption that the Geisha are surrounded by flowers in their residence. In Chinese and Korean, this pretty much has colloquially come to mean "The Red Light District" or to refer to pimps, prostitutes, and johns as a group.

Namu Myoho Renge Kyo / Homage to Lotus Sutra

China nn w mio f? lin hu j?ng
Japan na mu myou hou ren ge kyou
Namu Myoho Renge Kyo / Homage to Lotus Sutra Vertical Wall Scroll

This is sometimes translated as the "Devotion to the Law of the Lotus Flower Scripture."

This is a meditation chant and homage to the Lotus Sutra, used by Nichiren Buddhists in Japan.
This is also a chant used in China by certain sects of Buddhism that celebrate the deity Guanyin.

Also romanized as "Nam My?h? Renge Ky?" or without accents as "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo."

The last character was originally written as seen on the left. Sometimes, you will see it written in the Japanese variant form as shown on the right. If you want this Japanese variant, click on the "Modern Japanese Variant" text instead of the button up by the main title of this entry.

Lotus

China lin
Japan hasu
Lotus Vertical Wall Scroll

? is another name for "lotus."

This happens to be a single-character that expresses "lotus" in Chinese, and the common name of "lotus" in Japanese and Korean (note that there are two ways to pronounce this character in Korean).

Jasmine

China m l
Japan matsu ri
Jasmine Vertical Wall Scroll

?? is the title for "Jasmine" in Chinese.

This title is also used in Japanese but for a specific species known as "Arabian jasmine" (Jasminum sambac).

You will also find a longer version of this title. The longer version just adds a third character which means "flower." This one is just "jasmine" in Chinese, and the short form of "Arabian jasmine" in Japanese.

Jasmine Flower

China m l hu?
Japan ma ri ka
Jasmine Flower Vertical Wall Scroll

??? is the title for "Jasmine Flower" in Chinese.

This title is rarely used in Japanese for a specific species known as "Arabian jasmine" (Jasminum sambac).
Japanese will more commonly write ??????? (jyasumin no hana).

Flower Open / Blooming Flower

China hu? k?i
Flower Open / Blooming Flower Vertical Wall Scroll

These two characters literally mean "flower open."

?? is also associated with Springtime, the beginning of something, or youth.

?? is often followed by "flower falls" (closes and loses its petals) which means "Things come and go" or "Youth comes and goes."

If you like flowers and the Springtime, this is a great selection for you. However, if you want the companion "flower falls" (flower withers), we offer that as a companion wall scroll or all together as a four-character phrase.

Cherry Blossom

China y?ng hu?
Japan ouka
Cherry Blossom Vertical Wall Scroll

?? is how to write "cherry blossom" in Chinese and traditional Japanese Kanji.

The first character means "cherry" or sometimes "cherry tree."
The second character means "flowers" or "blossoms."

Oddly, my Chinese dictionary also defines these two characters as "Japanese oriental cherry tree" or "Oriental cherry blossom." However, the first character is the only one that means "cherry," so it can refer to any cherry blossoms in the whole world (not just those in Asia).


?There is an alternate version of the first character, which has become the standard for Japanese Kanji. If you want this version, instead of the one shown to the upper left, please click on the Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above. Although this is an alternate form in Chinese, most Chinese people will think this is just the Japanese version (Chinese people don't necessarily know the history and all alternate forms of Chinese characters from the past). Therefore, this version shown to the right is best if your audience is Japanese (though most Japanese will recognize the form shown in the upper left).

Flower

China hu?
Japan hana
Korea ?
Flower Vertical Wall Scroll

? is the simple way to write "flower" in Chinese, Japanese, and old Korean. It can also mean blossoms or can refer to a fancy or assorted pattern.

Note: In some context it can mean "spend money." However, as a single character, it will be read as "flower."

This has the meaning of Xochitl (flower) in Spanish, so if your name is Xochitl, I suggest this character to represent your name.

More random information about this character:
? is the Korean surname spelled as "Hwa" before the Korean Romanization reformation of 2000-2001.
It's also a somewhat common given name in China (for females).
? is a borrowed word from Chinese, so it sounds similar in Chinese and Korean.

Violet

China j?n
Japan sumire
Korea ?
Violet Vertical Wall Scroll

? is the Japanese Kanji for violet.

This can refer to any flower of genus Viola, esp. the Fuji dawn, Viola mandshurica.

This can also be the Japanese name Sumire. ? is also commonly written in Katakana as ???.

? is a variant of Chinese character ? (jin3) which has the same meaning.

Cherry Blossom / Sakura

China y?ng
Japan sakura
Korea ?
Cherry Blossom / Sakura Vertical Wall Scroll

? is the single-character (short) way to write "cherry blossom" or "cherry tree" in Chinese and traditional Japanese Kanji.


?There is an alternate version of this character, which has become the standard for Japanese Kanji. If you want this version, instead of the one shown to the upper left, please click on the Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above. Although this is an alternate form in Chinese, most Chinese people will think this is just the Japanese version (Chinese people don't necessarily know the history and all alternate forms of Chinese characters from the past). Therefore, this version shown to the right is best if your audience is Japanese (though most Japanese will recognize the form shown in the upper left).

Daisy

The yellow flower
China ch j
Japan hinagiku
Daisy Vertical Wall Scroll

?? is how they write "daisy" in Chinese and Japanese. Great if you love daisies, or your name is Daisy. If you translated it directly, this means "chick flower" (as in baby chickens) or "baby chrysanthemum." Of course, when an Asian person reads this, they just think "daisy."

If you're into botany, this title represents "Bellis Perennis."

In Japanese, this can be the female given name, Hinagiku.

Iris Flower

China ch?ng p
Japan ayame / shoubu
Iris Flower Vertical Wall Scroll

?? is the title for the iris flower in Japanese.

If your name happens to be Iris, this is a nice way to express your name by meaning in Japanese (it will mean your name but not sound like your name).

Can also mean Siberian iris (Iris sanguinea) or sweet flag (Acorus calamus / Acorus gramineus) varieties.


Note: This will also be recognized in Chinese, though it is generally written with the addition of a character meaning "stone" in front of this title in Chinese.

Rose Flower

(The flower of love)
China mi gu

China yu?n w?i hu?
Japan ichi hatsu hana

Note: There are other titles for specific iris varieties - contact us if you need something special.

Violet

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.
