Italian Scroll

イタリア人 is the Japanese word for Italian (as in an Italian person).

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

Italian Scroll

意大利人 is the Chinese word for Italian (as in an Italian person).

mǐ lán
mi ran
Milan Scroll

米蘭 is the transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the Latin name Milan.

This also happens to be the Chinese name for the city Milan or Milano in Italy.

米蘭 are only used for their phonetic properties but this would mean "rice orchid". But any Chinese person will know that you are talking about either the Italian city or a person named Milan (and will not take the literal meaning).

Though technically, you are supposed to use Katakana instead of Kanji, this also sounds like Milan in Japanese. The pronunciation was borrowed from Chinese when Japan borrowed Chinese characters in the 5th century.

Milan Scroll

ミラン is the Japanese Katakana (phonetic Japanese) for the name and city, Milan.

Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

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.
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.
