| 1. Angel / Messenger of Heaven
2. Archangel / Arch Angel
3. Guardian Angel
| 4. Dark Angel|
5. Fallen Angel
This is the meaning of Angel in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.
The first character means heaven. The second means messenger. Together it makes sense that we are talking about angels as Heaven's Messengers.
If you are an "Angel Junkie," this may be the wall scroll for you.
I also think it's a great choice if your name happens to be Angel.
This is the title Archangel in Chinese characters, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.
The first character means big or great (in this case, it means "arch").
The second means heaven (or sky).
The last means messenger.
The second and third characters together make the title for angel, which is literally "Heaven's Messenger."
This title would be understood as "The Chief of all Angels," or "The Great Angel." Some might even say it's the boss of Angels.
This is the title used for guardian angel in Chinese and Japanese Kanji. It's used in the same way that we use this title in the west - such as a guardian angel watching out for you, and allowing you to survive a disaster or accident.
The first two characters mean to guard and protect. The second two mean "angel" (literally "Heaven's messenger").
暗天使 is the shortest way to write, "Dark Angel," in Chinese.
This literally reads, "dark heaven's messenger."
天使 means "heaven's messenger" but is always understood as "angel".
This would be pronounced "kura tenshi" in Japanese. This has the same meaning in Japanese, but a very uncommon title. If you manage to find dark angel written in Japan, it would probably be ダーク エンジェル (Dāku Enjeru), which is a transliteration of the English title into Japanese.
This is another common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Angel.
This one misses the mark too - It uses a hard "H" sound to simulate the "J" sound of the "G" in this name. I don't know who transliterated these first and how it became the standard.
Again, I recommend using the meaning of Angel above.
If anything, this is the more masculine form of Angel. This is also the form commonly used for the masculine Latin name Ángel.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.
When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.
Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!
When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.
The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.
Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.
There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.
Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.
The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
