Someone I know has a small business in buying/selling things. She asked if I know what the painting says as I know a limited amount of Japanese. while I couldn't read it even if it was Japanese, I believe it to probably be Chinese. Any help would be appreciated.

1 Answer 1


The first picture says 荣贵齐眉(TC: 榮貴齊眉) and means "honour and wealth be on the same level as your eyebrows", a metaphor for high level of honour and wealth.

The second picture says 四时美艳(TC: 四時美艷) and means "beautiful in all four seasons".

  • 榮貴= honored and wealthy; 齊眉 = harmonious marriage
