Double Happiness

Chinese Calligraphy Scroll

Ivory-colored Silk Double Happiness Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This is a common gift for Chinese couples getting married or newly married couples, but it appropriate for anyone for whom you wish the greatest of happiness.

As we say in the west, "Two heads are better than one" Well, in the east, two "happinesses" are certainly better than one.

This is not really a character that is pronounced very often - it's almost exclusively used in written form. However, if pressed, most Chinese people will pronounce this "shuang xi" (double happy) although literally there are two "xi" characters combined in this calligraphy (but nobody will say "xi xi").

In Chinese, "xi" is pronounced like "she" but with your tongue sitting in the bottom of your mouth and your teeth slightly open (there is no sound in English exactly like this).


This piece is painted with special Chinese ink on rice paper mounted to a traditional silk scroll.

Chinese Calligraphy is only practiced by those with a keen and agile hand. It is an art that dates back thousands of years, and great artists, writers, and poets are often admired for their calligraphy ability and style.

The artist's name is "Li Dan Qing" who is from Beijing, China. He is an older man with good calligraphy skills.

To create this art, Li Dan Qing used special Chinese ink on thick rice paper. Then I took it to the best painting mounters in Beijing to mount the painting on a silk scroll.

This hanging scroll is really nice since it doesn't require framing. Just hang it on your wall as Chinese people have done for centuries.

The scroll that you receive may vary slightly from the image above, as this series of calligraphy artwork is all handmade to order.
