China dào cǎo rén
Scarecrow Vertical Wall Scroll

稻草人 is the Chinese title for a scarecrow.

The literal meaning of these characters is "rice straw person".


Japan kakashi
Scarecrow Vertical Wall Scroll

案山子 is a Japanese word that means scarecrow.

Colloquially, this can also refer to a figurehead within a corporation (stands tall with authority, but has no backbone or power).

This can also be the Japanese given name Kagashi, or female given names Kakashi, Anzanshi, or Anzanko.

Sometimes the title 鳥威し is used for scarecrows in Japan, but 案山子 is far more common.

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.
