Flying / Flight

 hi / fei
Flying / Flight Scroll

飛 is the single character for flight, flying, or to fly.

It can be a single character in Chinese and Korean Hanja. However, in Japanese, it's often understood as a female given name Fei or used to mean a rook (shoji). 飛 is best if your audience is Chinese.

Flying / Flight / Rising Upward

 fēi yáng
 hi you
Flying / Flight / Rising Upward Scroll

飛揚 means flight, flying, or to rise upwards in Chinese and Japanese Kanji.

飛揚 is not the most common title for a wall scroll but if you have a personal reason or this idea is important to you, then go for it.

This can also be the personal name “Hiyou” in Japanese.

Flying Ace / Aviator / Bird Man

 chou jin
Flying Ace / Aviator / Bird Man Scroll

鳥人 means “bird man” or “bird person,” but it is used colloquially in Japanese to mean a flying ace or aviator.

Flying Dragon Horse

 fēi lóng mǎ
 hi ryuu me
Flying Dragon Horse Scroll

飛龍馬 is the title for a “flying dragon-horse.”

This can refer to a mythical beast or, more realistically, a very fast horse at the track.

Flying Dragon

Flying Dragon Scroll

螣 is the Chinese character and old Korean Hanja that means “flying dragon.”

Flying Squirrel

Flying Squirrel Scroll

鸓 is the Chinese character for flying squirrel.

Flying Tigers

 fēi hǔ
Flying Tigers Scroll

飛虎 is the short, or rather, Korean title of the “Flying Tigers.”

This short title is not very often used in China but is a title used in Korea. When the Flying Tigers volunteers were in China, Korea was also occupied by Japanese forces. Because many Korean civilians were enslaved and killed at the hands of the Japanese soldiers, any group that fought against the Japanese at that time was held in high esteem by the Korean people.

Note: I suggest the other 3-character entry since this group was so strongly related to China.

飛虎 is also used as an adjective in Korean to describe a courageous person.

Flying Tigers AVG

 fēi hǔ duì
Flying Tigers AVG Scroll

飛虎隊 is the full Chinese title of the “Flying Tigers Group.”

These were the American pilots that volunteered to go to China and fight the Japanese before the entry of the USA into World War Two. These fighter pilots were so esteemed in China that fallen American pilots could always find refuge in villages and safe passage and escape to areas of China that were not occupied by Japan at that time. Chinese villagers helped such fallen pilots with full knowledge that when the Japanese occupation forces found out, all the men, women, and children in the village would be massacred by Japanese troops (there are more than a few known cases of such massacres).

The Flying Tigers successfully kept supply lines to the Chinese resistance open and divided Japanese forces at a crucial time while America prepared to join WWII officially.

A wall scroll like this honors the men who risked or gave their lives as noble volunteers and is a reminder of the best moment in the history of Sino-American relations.

These three characters literally mean “flying tiger(s) group/team/squad.”

Note: Hanging these characters on your wall will not make you any friends with Japanese people who are aware or this history (most Japanese have no idea, as Japan’s involvement in WWII has all but been erased from school textbooks in Japan).

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.
