shī piān
Psalms Scroll

This Chinese, Japanese, and old Korean title means a poem, a composition in verse, or book containing a collection of poems.

It is also the most common way to write the title for the biblical Book of Psalms in Chinese. It is the second most common way to write Psalms in Japanese.


Psalms Scroll

This Japanese word means "book containing a collection of poems".

詩編 is also the most common way in Japanese to write Psalms (as in the book of the Bible).

The LORD is my Shepherd

yē hé huá shì wǒ de mù zhě
The LORD is my Shepherd Scroll

耶和華是我的牧者 is the first line from Psalms 23 straight out of the Chinese Union Bible.

This reads, "The LORD is my shepherd", or "Jehovah is my shepherd".

The character breakdown:
耶和華 = Jehovah (most English Bibles translate as LORD or God). This Chinese title is meant to sound a bit like the original Hebrew YHWH or Yahweh.
是 = is.
我的 = my.
牧者 = shepherd.

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.
