 bǎo bao
Baby Scroll

寶寶 is how Chinese people express “baby.”

The word is composed of the same character twice, and therefore literally means “double precious” or “double treasure.”

This would be a nice wall scroll to put either inside or by the door of your baby's room (not on the door, as wall scrolls swing around wildly when hung on doors that open and close a lot).

 nyuu ji
Baby Scroll

乳児 is a common two-Kanji way to write “baby” in Japanese.

This can also be translated as “infant” or “suckling baby.”

 akan bou
Baby Scroll

赤ん坊 is one way that Japanese people express “baby.”

Beloved Son / Beloved Child

 ài zǐ
 manago / aiko / yoshiko
Beloved Son / Beloved Child Scroll

愛子 means “beloved son” in Chinese and Japanese.

While it could refer to a child in general (in Japanese), it's usually reserved or expected to be a title for a male child (in Chinese).

This can also be a given name in Japanese romanized as Aiko or Yoshiko.

 bàn
 kizuna
 
Bond Scroll

This Kanji represents a bond, as in the bond between mother and daughter, father and son, family ties, or a family bond.

絆 is the kind of character that says, no matter what happens (difficult times), we have this bond that cannot be broken.

If you go to the Japanese dictionary, the definition is the bonds (between people), (emotional) ties, relationship, connection, link, tether, or fetters.



Read this before ordering...
This Kanji is best if your audience is Japanese. While this is also a Chinese character, it has a completely different meaning in Chinese (it means to hinder or stumble in Chinese). it’s a very rare character in Korean Hanja but does mean bond in Korean (used in Korean words for certain kinds of glue and sticking plaster).

First Born Son

 zhǎng nán
 chounan
First Born Son Scroll

長男 is a Chinese, old Korean Hanja and Japanese Kanji title for eldest son (may be the only son), firstborn son.

This can also be the Japanese personal name “Nobuo.”

Father and Son

 chichi musuko
Father and Son Scroll

父息子 is “father and son” in Japanese.

Father and Son

 fù yù zǐ
Father and Son Scroll

父與子 is the simple term for “Father and Son.”

However, we like some of our other tribute phrases to fathers better than this one.

God Son / God Child

 jiào zǐ
God Son / God Child Scroll

教子 is the title for a child which you have a sworn duty to raise should the child's parents die.

This title suggests it's talking about a son (male child), but this title is universal and can mean God Child (with no gender specified).

Mother and Son

 mǔ zǐ
 bo shi
Mother and Son Scroll

母子 simply means “mother and son,” or the essence of the relationship and bond between mother and son.

母子 is really a single word that expresses this idea (showing how important or significant this bond is).

This is not the most common choice for a wall scroll, it is acceptable if you feel this term is important to you.


See Also:  Mother and Daughter

 wǒ ér
My Son Scroll

我兒 means “my son” in Chinese.

The first character means my, mine, me, or I (it's possessive in this case).

The second character means son (or baby).

Note: 我兒 is a very unusual title for a calligraphy wall scroll.

 musuko
Son Scroll

息子 is “my son” in Japanese.

Technically, the “my” part is implied.

No one knows a son better than the father

 zhī zǐ mò ruò fù
No one knows a son better than the father Scroll

知子莫若父 can be translated as “No one knows a son better than his father.”

This idiom is based on the idea that after spending many years together, family members know everything about each other. Better than anyone else, a father knows the qualities and shortcomings of his son.

If you are looking for something about “father and son,” this is probably the best selection.

While this is the original proverb (very old), others have been composed about various combinations of mothers, sons, daughters, and fathers. Let me know if you need a custom version.

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.
