Good Luck

China xìng yùn
Japan kou un
Good Luck Vertical Wall Scroll

This can be translated as "good luck," "fortunate," "lucky" and/or "good fortune" in Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

Occasionally, this is also translated as a type of happiness or a short way to write serendipity.

Happiness / Fortune / Lucky

China xìng
Japan saki / sachi / rei / rē
Happiness / Fortune / Lucky Vertical Wall Scroll

幸 can mean happiness, good fortune, good luck, and in the old days, good harvest or bounty.

Note: From Japanese, this character is sometimes romanized as "sachi," and is often pronounced "kou" or sometimes "rei" when used in compound words with other Kanji.

Happiness

China xìng fú
Japan koufuku
Happiness Vertical Wall Scroll

幸福 is a general state of "happiness" which can also be translated as truly-blessed, welfare, well-being, or fortunate.

Shili / Shiri / Śrī

China shì lì
Japan shiri
Shili / Shiri / Śrī Vertical Wall Scroll

室利 is a Buddhist term or title that comes from the Sanskrit śrī.

The meaning is fortunate, lucky, prosperous, wealth, or beauty. This can be a sort of suffix for certain deities or respected people in Buddhism.

Survivor

China xìng cún zhě
Survivor Vertical Wall Scroll

倖存者 is the most common way to express "survivor" in Chinese. It literally means "lucky/fortunate surviving person."

倖存者 is kind of an odd selection for a wall scroll but there is no better way to say survivor in Chinese calligraphy.

Serendipity / Lucky Coincidence

Japan kou un na guu zen
Serendipity / Lucky Coincidence Vertical Wall Scroll

幸運な偶然 is one of many ways to express serendipity in Japanese.

The first two Kanji mean fortunate, lucky, fortune, or good luck.

In the middle is a Japanese Hiragana character that serves to connect these words/ideas together.

The last two Kanji mean incidentally, by chance, randomly, unexpectedly, suddenly, accident, fortuity, or by coincidence.

Eternal Happiness

Japan ei en no kou fuku
Eternal Happiness Vertical Wall Scroll

永遠の幸福 means "eternal happiness" in Japanese.

永遠 means eternal, eternity, perpetuity, forever, immortality, and permanence.

の is a possessive article which sort of makes this selection mean "happiness, of the eternal kind."

幸福 means happiness, though this word can also be translated as truly blessed, joy, happy, welfare, well-being, or fortunate.

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.
