Rainbow Calligraphy

Chinese Rainbow Calligraphy is an ancient art form that dates back at least 2,000 years to pictography engraved on Neolithic pottery. Under the Han dynasty, our own alphabet is also believed to have begun with picture writing. Just as some English names were derived from certain Greek meanings, masters of Chinese Rainbow Calligraphy aim to portray an individual's name through skillful colorful brush strokes in a fascinating way. The world knows you by your first name, which is perhaps the reason why such meaningful art has been developed at all.


One has never heard of Chinese Rainbow Calligraphy??? Of course not, as these sacred masterpieces of art can only previously be found in the ancient world of the Orient, until now. Find out for yourself just how wonderful these personalised art items are! Observe carefully. Personality of "Richard" as interpreted by Chinese Rainbow Calligraphy symbols : Crane=Longevity Bird=Happiness Dragon=Power
   What is Chinese Rainbow Calligraphy? To explain this type of unique artwork, your English first name is first translated into its Chinese equivalent. For example, the name "Richard" can be translated into the Chinese equivalent of "Lei Chat".
This translated name can now be represented by Chinese characters. Instead of painting the characters in the classic Chinese way, the brush strokes are skillfully painted by Calligraphy masters, in an array of vibrant colors using specially made brushes. The most interesting thing part is that the combination of strokes will eventually be made to resemble certain types of Eastern symbols. Different Chinese characters will consist of different sets of symbols where each symbol has its own unique meanings e.g.Dragon=Power, Phoenix=Nobility, Bird=Happiness, etc. Hence, every name will have its own combinations of symbols which reflects the individual's personality.
