Can I enlarge the display of certain characters?

I wrote a small 'flash card' program to help me memorize stuff. The (UTF-8
encoded fixed-size font) text output is displayed by ncurses. Although it
works fine it has one usability problem: I need to set my terminal to use a
font size small enough to fit all the information on the screen (no bigger
than 16px), but when I do so, I find complex Chinese characters to small to
read (for me to memorize quickly/accurately).

I don't know if it's possible but I want to display said Chinese characters
at a larger size than their usual double width (say 4 columns and 2 rows
instead of 2 columns). If possible, displaying a bitmap inside a ncurses
window would also be ok (I'd just have to generate some 2000 little
pictures). Can anyone cue me in on a (ncursesw?) feature or creative
hack/patch I could use?
