Angel / Messenger of Heaven

China tiān shǐ
Japan ten shi
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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.

Archangel / Arch Angel

China dà tiān shǐ
Japan dai ten shi
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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.

Guardian Angel

China shǒu hù tiān shǐ
Japan shu go ten shi
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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").

Fallen Angel

Japan datenshi
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the Japanese title for a fallen angel.

This can also refer to a demon or Satan.

Angel

Japan anheru
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the name Angel written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese). This sounds like "Angel" but does not mean "Angel."


Note: Because this is all Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Angel

(Name Version 1)
China ān qí ér
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the most common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Angel.
It is supposed to sound like Angel but to be honest, this one misses the mark.

I would go with the meaning of Angel if I were you.


Note: Because this is all Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Angel

(Name - Version 2)
China ān hè ěr
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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.


Note: Because this is all Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

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 a week or two for $10!

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.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

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.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

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.


A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

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.
