Chinese Calligraphy for Wisdom Leadership

Post by ebelhm01 » May 15, 2013 9:00 am

Hello Gary,

I am wondering if it would be possible to have the single character for Wisdom, and the Two Charachers for Leadership together. I note that you can purchase wisdom and leadership in seperate pieces of art.

The translator came up with this:
I can't think of or find any words that describe both without looking like word list.

But if you don't mind having a word list, then here are the ideas:

睿智 (rui4 zhi4, wisdom) 领袖 (ling3 xiu4, leader, mostly for political leaders in modern Chinese language).

Or 睿智 领导 (ling3 dao3, leader/leadership - more generic)

Word lists are not ideal, as there is not subject, verb, or object (thus defying proper grammar). But more and more, they do appear in the west.

I can set this up as a single wall scroll with all four characters, but if it was for me, or my boss, I would get two separate wall scrolls (which could be hung as a "couplet").
