I'm trying to decipher the calligraphy on this t-shirt. I've tried drawing the characters into Pleco but I can't really tell stroke from embellishment. I'd be grateful if someone could show me the regular typed version of each character and the English translation. It's a very cool t-shirt. Thanks for the help.
龍鳳呈祥 english meaning: dragon pheonix auspiciousness. An idiom for extremely good fortune or lucky events. Also used to describe clothes etc. decorated with dragons and pheonixes for said auspiciousness, like here.
The calligraphy is traditional characters, here is simplified for reference 龙凤呈祥 in case thats what you are studying.
龍(dragon)鳳(Feng)呈(to preset)祥(good luck, good omen; happiness).
Note: Feng is the shortened name of Fenghuang (Feng-huang), or misleadingly, Chinese phoenix in Chinese mythology, is an immortal bird whose rare appearance is said to be an omen foretelling harmony at ceremonies, such as marriage.
