Miraculous Comeback


12 1/4″ W x 43″ H Japanese Scroll
by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase


Miraculous Comeback in Japanese is 起死回生 which is read kishikaisei

The four-character idiom kishikaisei meaning “Miraculous Comeback” is composed of the kanji (read ki) meaning “wake up, rouse”, (read shi) meaning “death”, (read kai) meaning “return”, and (read sei) meaning “life”. The phrase kishikaisei then literally means “Wake from death, return to life” and is used in the sense of a miraculous comeback – like a game winning home run – or any desparate situation where all hope seems lost but one still manages a miraculous success.
