Sisters

China zǐ mèi
Japan shi mai
Sisters

姉妹 is a Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja title for sisters.

Please note: It's kind of an uncommon title for a wall scroll.

Sisterhood / Sisters Relationship

China jiě mèi guān xì
Sisterhood / Sisters Relationship

姐妹關繫 is an expression which means "sisterhood."

Literally, this means "sisters relationship."

Sisters at Heart

The love between sisters
Japan kokoro no shi mai
Sisters at Heart

心の姉妹 is "heart of sisters," "soul sisters," or "sisters of the heart." This can be used for actual sisters to celebrate the heartfelt love they feel. It can even be used by two women who feel a connection as if they are sisters.

Brothers and Sisters

Japan go kyou dai
Brothers and Sisters

御兄弟 is a Japanese honorific title for brothers and sisters or siblings.

Please note: It's kind of an uncommon title for a wall scroll.

Sisterhood

China jiě mèi qíng
Sisterhood

姐妹情 is one way to say "sisterhood."

Literally, this means "sisters feeling, emotion, passion, or situation."

Sisterhood / Association of Women

China fù nǚ huì
Japan fu jo kai
Sisterhood / Association of Women

婦女會 is an expression which means "sisterhood" as in a women's association, club or group.

The first two characters mean "women."

The last character means to assemble, to meet, to gather, to see, union, group, or association.

Sisterhood / Sisterly Love

Japan shi mai ai
Sisterhood / Sisterly Love

This Japanese term means "Sisterhood," "Sisterly Love," or "Sister Love."

Dark Sister

China hēi àn nǚ
Japan koku an nyo
Dark Sister

This Buddhist title means "dark sister," "dark one," or "dark woman."

There are two sisters:
One is the deva, 功德女 ("merit" or "achieving"), who causes people to acquire wealth.
The other is the "dark one," 黑闇女, who causes people to spend and waste.

These sisters always accompany each other.

Brotherly and Sisterly Love

China shǒu zú qíng
Brotherly and Sisterly Love

手足情 is the love between siblings. When you love, protect, care for, and have a deep bond that only brothers or sisters can.

The actual translation is "Hand and Foot" but it is said the relationship between brothers or sisters is like that of hands and feet. They belong together, and complete the body. Even though this says "hand and foot," it will always be read with the brotherly and sisterly love meaning in Chinese.

Note: During the past 20 years, the "One child policy" in China is slowly making this term obsolete.

Younger Sister

China mèi
Japan mai / imouto
Younger Sister

妹 is the single-character for younger sister.

In colloquial Japanese speech, this can be a way to say, darling, dear, honey, or my betrothed (only used when referring to a woman).

In Japanese, this can be the female given name Mai.

In Chinese, you will generally see this used in double form, "妹妹" or "mei mei" when referring to a younger sister.

Brother and Sister

Japan keishi / kyoudai
Brother and Sister

兄姉 means, "brother and sister," in Japanese.

There's not a perfect way to say it in calligraphy but this is probably the best way.

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

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.
