Ocean / Sea Scroll

海 is the character often used for sea or ocean in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja. In some context, this can refer to the beach, or an area near the sea, such as "Shanghai" (same hai is the second character of Shanghai).

If you are looking for a universal word for ocean or sea - or can't decide which character for ocean or sea that you want, pick this one!

海 is also a common female given name in Japan - also a good name for a restaurant as "Umi Sushi" would mean "Ocean Sushi Restaurant".


海Please note that our Japanese master calligrapher will tend to write this character in the form shown to the right (a line instead of two dots). Both versions are correct, and can be read in either language. Let us know if you have a preference when you order.

Marine / Soldier of the Sea

kai hei
Marine / Soldier of the Sea Scroll

This way to express "Marine" as in an individual "Soldier of the Sea" in Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja characters (not to be confused with Korean Hangul).

Breaking down each character, this means:
"ocean/sea soldier/army/warrior".

Please note that this Japanese/Korean version kind of means "sailor" or "navy" in Chinese.

hǎi yáng
kai you
Ocean Scroll

海洋 is probably the most common word for ocean in Japanese. 海洋 is also sometimes used in Chinese and Korean Hanja.

In Japan, this can also be a female given name when pronounced as Miyou or Unami.

yáng
you
Ocean Scroll

洋 is the Chinese and old Korean Hanja word for ocean. This can be pronounced in Japanese, and has the same meaning but is rarely seen alone in Japanese.

Besides ocean or sea, this character can also mean foreign, wide, or vast.

It's more common for Chinese people to use a different word "hai" for ocean or sea.

Pirate

Sea Robber
hǎi zéi
kaizoku
Pirate Scroll

海賊 means pirate in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

Literally this translates as sea robber or ocean thief.

Haidong Gumdo

hǎi dǒng jiàn dào
Haidong Gumdo Scroll

海東劍道 is the Korean martial arts style that means Eastern Sea Sword Way.

The character meanings break down this way:
海 = Sea
東 = East/Eastern
劍 = Sword
道 = Way/Path/Style/Method

This can sometimes be romanized as "Hae Dong Kum Do", "Haidong Kendo", "Hae Dong Geom Do", "Haedong Geomdo", or "Haedong Kumdo".

If you want this written in modern Korean Hangul (해동검도) instead of Hanja (Chinese), click on the Hangul characters next to the Korean flag above, instead of the regular button.

The Planet Neptune

hǎi wáng xīng
kaiousei
The Planet Neptune Scroll

海王星 is the Japanese Kanji, old Korean Hanja and Chinese title for the planet Neptune.

海王星 literally mean, "Sea God Star" (all planets end in the character that also means "star").

Seafarer / Sailor

hǎi yuán
kaiin / kain
Seafarer / Sailor Scroll

海員 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for sailor, mariner, seafarer, or seaman.

If you sail the seas and brave the waves, this may be the title for you.

The literal meanings: 海 is "Sea" and 員 is "Person".

hǎi jūn
kaigun
Navy Scroll

海軍 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja word for "Navy". 海軍 is not country-specific, so it is the title for "naval service" from any country with a navy.

These two characters literally mean "sea military".

A nice scroll for any sailor who likes Asian characters and has pride in their service.

Fatherly Master / Sifu / Shi Fu / Shifu

Martial Arts Teacher
shī fù
si fu
shi fu
Fatherly Master / Sifu / Shi Fu / Shifu Scroll

師父 means master in Chinese (occasionally used in Korean Hanja and Japanese as well). In the context of Martial Arts, this is the master and teacher who instructs students.

The second character by itself means father. Thus, you get the "Fatherly Master" translation. There's an old Chinese saying that goes something like, "One who is your teacher for one day, is your father for life".

Language notes: I've often seen this romanized as "sifu", this is actually the Cantonese romanization. In Mandarin Chinese, it's "shifu". The pronunciation in Mandarin is actually like "sure foo" (using typical English pronunciation). There's an "R-sound" in there, which is not obvious from the romanization. Many martial arts studios incorrectly pronounce this like "she foo" (which is actually the Japanese pronunciation). In Cantonese, it sounds like "Sea foo" (almost like "sea food", minus the "d" on the end).

師父 is kind of a weird selection for a calligraphy wall scroll, this entry is more for educational purposes. But you are welcome to buy it if you feel it's appropriate for your circumstances.

Legendary Turtle

áo
Legendary Turtle Scroll

鼇 means "legendary turtle" in Chinese. 鼇 is a great mythological turtle that travels the seas. The creature is comparable to the dragon of China, however, it so happens that dragons became a bit more famous as history progressed. In modern Chinese, this character can just refer to a large sea turtle.

Note: 鼇 can be pronounced in Korean but this is a very rare Korean Hanja form - it hasn't been used in Korea for at least a few hundred years (even before they switched to Hangul characters).

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.
