Traditional Japanese Calligraphy (Shodo)
Handpainted by a Japanese artist
Have a name translated into an enduring piece of art. Our Japanese calligraphy is hand painted by an artist trained in the centuries-old tradition of shodo (Japanese calligraphy). She carries on this ancient tradition in her beautiful works of art.
After accurately translating your name into the appropriate characters to depict it, she will carefully paint the characters using traditional tools and sumi ink. Your art will be stamped with her seal and signed on the back.
You can select to have the genuine work of art matted in a custom-cut mat designed to fit a standard frame, making it easy for you to find and select just the right one.
Hand-painted calligraphy makes a terrific gift! It's an affordable present for any martial artist training in a Japanese style as well as anyone who can appreciate the quality of the artwork. Uniquely personal, a name translation will be cherished for years to come.
