Chinese Rainbow Calligraphy is an ancient art form that dates back at least 2,000 years. We will translate your 'English' (or 'Western') first name into its equivalent in Chinese, and then have it skilfully painted by a Calligraphy master. Instead of painting the characters in the classic Chinese way, the brush strokes are painted in an array of vibrant colours, using specially made brushes.
The combinations of strokes are made to resemble certain types of Chinese symbols where each symbol has its own unique meaning. For example, a Dragon=Power, a Phoenix=Nobility and a Bird=Happiness. The symbols used for your name are very much influenced by the original stroke patterns of your name in its black & white format. Each name has its own combination of symbols, thereby reflecting an individual personality.
A name may have 2 larger or 3 smaller Chinese characters. A brief description of symbols used in the calligraphy is included.
