Sorry / Apology

China duì bù qǐ
Sorry / Apology Vertical Wall Scroll

對不起 is how Chinese people say "I'm sorry," "pardon me," or "forgive me."

對不起 is the most common phrase to apologize for everything from bumping into someone to breaking someone's heart. Basically, it's used in the same way we use "sorry" for many situations.


Note: This is a strange thing to write on a wall scroll for Chinese people - but you can bend the rules if you want in the west.

Sorrow / Feeling Sorry

Please Forgive Me

Please Forgive Me Vertical Wall Scroll

お許しを is how to write, "Please Forgive Me," in Japanese.

Often, Japanese Christians will add "God" (Kamisama) in front of this.


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

God Forgive Me

Japan kami sama o yuru shi wo
God Forgive Me Vertical Wall Scroll

神様お許しを is how to write, "God Forgive Me," in Japanese.

There is an essence of humble begging or "please" implied in this phrase.


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

Preparation Yields No Fear or Worries

China yǒu bèi wú huàn
Preparation Yields No Fear or Worries Vertical Wall Scroll

This really means, "When you are well-prepared, you have nothing to fear." Noting that the third character means "no" or "without" and modifies the last... The last character can mean misfortune, troubles, worries, or fears. It could even be stretched to mean sickness. Therefore you can translate this proverb a few ways. I've also seen it translated as "Preparedness forestalls calamities."

有備無患 is comparable to the English idiom, "Better safe than sorry" but does not directly/literally mean this.

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.

single-character wall scroll.

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.
