    kanji and traditional(complicated) chinese words are the same and usually have the same meanings
    1 is too hard to read. probably something profound or something like 白人看不懂
    2 is "east" "country" something like that

    it's supposed to be vertical like this:

    [​IMG]

    can't read the first character because it's worn off, as are the two characters on the last line

    the two chars in between should be 生成 = be produced; generate (translating this as chinese)

    but since there's a character in front, the meaning could be drastically different

    chinese calligraphy is ridiculous. generally i can read at least a few words out of a chunk (like i knew "east" from the other one previously), but with calligraphy it's pretty much just "wtf is this shit?"

    I am not sure the first one...maybe in chinese or in Japanese...Both countries have calligraphy. I guess it is a poam or some words left by the drawer who mark his identity...for I see one character as the family name of Chinese people.."Yang"杨
    The second one is Japanese...although it is the same writing and characters in Chinese. East country maybe. Third one is difficult...you put it not the rightside...It is difficult to figure it out...I only see one character That is "chen"in chinese and has a lot of meaning...like verb becoming..or the noun success...
    I am a Chinese...But it is very difficult。。。I am not sure
