China tài bái xīng

The Planet Mars

China huǒ xīng
Japan kasei / kase
The Planet Mars Vertical Wall Scroll

火星 is the Japanese Kanji, old Korean Hanja and Chinese title for the planet Mars.

The characters literally mean, "fire star" or "spark."

The Planet Neptune

China hǎi wáng xīng
Japan kaiousei
The Planet Neptune Vertical Wall Scroll

海王星 is the Japanese Kanji, old Korean Hanja and Chinese title for the planet Neptune.

海王星 literally mean, "Sea God Star" (all planets end in the character that also means "star").

Pluto

China míng wáng xīng
Japan mei ou sei
Pluto Vertical Wall Scroll

冥王星 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korea Hanja for Pluto (the dwarf planet or non-planet that used to be thought of as the 9th planet in the Solar system).

Venus / Gold Star

China jīn xīng
Japan kinboshi / kinsei
Venus / Gold Star Vertical Wall Scroll

This literally means gold star. Most of the time, in the context of the sky, this refers to the planet Venus.

Away from the sky, this can refer to a dazzling victory (e.g. win of a rank-and-file wrestler over the grand champion), or be the Japanese surname Kinboshi.

In Buddhist context, this is Śukra, from Sanskrit for the planet Venus.

Saturn

China tǔ xīng
Japan to shou
Saturn Vertical Wall Scroll

土星 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for the planet Saturn.

The literal meaning of these characters is "earth star". The earth character is on of the five elements of Chinese culture. This earth character regards soil or dirt, not the planet Earth.

Saturn has been titled 土星 for at least 2000 years.

Uranus

China tiān wáng xīng
Japan tennousei
Uranus Vertical Wall Scroll

天王星 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for the planet Uranus.

Jupiter

China mù xīng
Japan Mokusei
Jupiter Vertical Wall Scroll

木星 is the planet Jupiter in Chinese characters, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

The literal meaning is "wood star."

This can also be a given name (Mokusei) or the surname (Kiboshi) in Japanese.

Earth

China dì qiú
Japan chi kyuu
Earth Vertical Wall Scroll

地球 is the name of the earth (our planet) in Chinese, old Korean Hanja and Japanese Kanji.

If you love the earth, or want to be reminded of where your home is in the solar system, this is the wall scroll for you.

Mercury

China shuǐ xīng
Japan sui shou
Mercury Vertical Wall Scroll

水星 is title for the planet Mercury in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

The literal meaning is "water star." This title has been used to refer to Mercury in much of Asia for the past 2200 years or longer.

Venus

China wéi nà sī
Venus Vertical Wall Scroll

維納斯 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Venus.

維納斯 is meant to sound like Venus in Chinese but does not mean Venus. I suggest you use 金星 which means Venus (the planet) if your name is Venus.

Five Elements

China jīn mù shuǐ huǒ tǔ
Five Elements Vertical Wall Scroll

金木水火土 is a list of the Chinese characters for the five elements in a comfortable order (meaning that they simply "feel right" to a Chinese person who views this arrangement).

The order is metal, wood, water, fire, earth.

Note that sometimes the metal element is translated as gold. And earth refers to soil versus the whole planet earth.

Earth

(Used in Japanese version of five elements)
China
Japan chi / ji / tsushi / tsuchi
Earth Vertical Wall Scroll

地 is the single-character element and title of the planet Earth in Chinese, old Korean Hanja and Japanese Kanji.

Because this is a single-character, the definition is a little ambiguous, and can have many meanings depending on the context in which it is used. These meanings include: earth, ground, land, soil, dirt, place, territory, bottom (of a package, book, etc.), earth (one of the Japanese five elements), the region in question, the local area, skin, texture, fabric, material, weave, base, background, one's true nature, narrative (i.e. descriptive part of a story), real life, actuality, etc.

In Japanese, this Kanji can be pronounced several ways, including chi, ji, tsushi, or tsuchi.
地 is also an element of the Japanese version of the five elements (the original Chinese version uses a different version of earth).

Body and Earth in Unity

Japan shindofuni / shindofuji
Body and Earth in Unity Vertical Wall Scroll

身土不二 (Shindofuni) is originally a Buddhist concept or proverb referring to the inseparability of body-mind and geographical circumstances.

身土不二 literally reads, "Body [and] earth [are] not two".

Other translations or matching ideas include:
Body and land are one.
Body and earth can not be separated.
Body earth sensory curation.
You are what you eat.
Indivisibility of the body and the land (because the body is made from food and food is made from the land).

Going further, this speaks of our human bodies and the land from which we get our food being closely connected. This phrase is used often when talking about natural and organic vegetables coming directly from the farm to provide the healthiest foods in Japan.

Character notes: 身(shin) in this context does not just mean your physical body rather a concept including both body and mind.
土 (do) refers to soil, earth, clay, land, or in some cases, locality. It's not the proper name of Earth, the planet. However, in can refer to the land or realm we live in.

Japanese note: This has been used in Japan, on and off since 1907 as a slogan for a governmental healthy eating campaign (usually pronounced as shindofuji instead of the original shindofuni in this context). It may have been hijacked from Buddhism for this propaganda purpose, but at least this is "healthy propaganda."

Korean note: The phrase 身土不二 was in use by 1610 A.D. in Korea where it can be found in an early medical journal.
In modern South Korea, it's written in Hangul as 신토불이. Korea used Chinese characters (same source for Japanese Kanji) as their only written standard form of the language until about a hundred years ago. Therefore, many Koreans will recognize 身土不二 as a native phrase and concept.

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.
