shā
haze
Shark Scroll

This single Chinese character means shark.

However, in Japanese, it can refer to the family of goby fish.

鯊 is good if you're looking for shark in Chinese but Japanese may misunderstand it.

shā
suna
Sand  Scroll

沙 means sand in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This can imply something infinite like the sands of the Ganges. It's often used in Buddhism to suggest something countless.


This can also be the Japanese female given name Migiwa, so it’s kind of like the English name Sandy.

Sand / Gravel

shā
suna
Sand / Gravel Scroll

砂 means sand or gravel in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

The radicals in the character imply the grit from ground-down stone or rock.


This can also be the Japanese surname Sunahama.

Kill / Slaughter / Murder / Butcher

shā
satsu
Kill / Slaughter / Murder / Butcher Scroll

殺 is how to write "to kill" or "killing".

殺 is an absolutely shocking word to have on a wall scroll. It will bewilder, scare, and perhaps offend any Chinese, Korean, or Japanese person who sees it. I do not in any way recommend this for a piece of calligraphy artwork. This entry is only here because our calligraphy search engine received so many requests for "kill".

Note: In Korean Hanja, this character is not often used alone - see the other two-character entry for "kill".

fuku shuu sha
Avenger Scroll

復讐者 is a Japanese Kanji title that means avenger or revenger.

The first two characters literally mean revenge or avenge.

The last character is a way to say person (or soldier/warrior).

Altogether, you have something like, "avenging person", hence avenger.

Rank Holder

The one who has achieved rank in martial arts
yǒu duàn zhě
yuu dan sha
Rank Holder Scroll

有段者 is a Japanese term for someone who holds rank in karate, judo, etc.
This term theoretically applies to anyone with rank (above a white belt). However, some schools or dojos may reserve this title for a holder of a black belt.

I'd suggest that you only order this phrase if you have honestly reached this level.

This title does kind of make sense in Chinese but only to those Chinese who practice "kong shou dao" (karate) or when used in the context of martial arts.

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen

hon sha ze shou nen
Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen Scroll

本者是正念 is a phrase or chant used by Reiki practitioners.

There are several ways to translate this, but mine would be, "Original Nature is Mindfulness".

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 nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
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.
