Angel / Messenger of Heaven

China tiān shǐ
Japan ten shi
ribbon top
<mark>Angel</mark> / Messenger of Heaven

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
ribbon top
Arch<mark>angel</mark> / Arch <mark>Angel</mark>

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 syu go ten shi
ribbon top
Guardian <mark>Angel</mark>

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").


(Name Version 1)
China ān qí ér
ribbon top

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.


(Name - Version 2)
China ān hè ěr
ribbon top

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.


Japanese Katakana
Japan anheru
ribbon top

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

This name is written in Katakana, a specifically-Japanese character set.
This selection MUST be written by our Japanese master calligrapher
(sorry, no economy calligraphy service/pricing for this selection).

Fallen Angel

Japan datenshi
ribbon top
Fallen <mark>Angel</mark>

This is the Japanese title for a fallen angel.

This can also refer to a demon or Satan.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The scroll that I am holding in this picture is a "medium size"
4-character wall scroll.
As you can see, it is a great size to hang on your wall.

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.
