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.

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.

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").

Dark Angel

China hēi àn tiān shǐ
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

黑暗天使 means, "Dark Angel," in Chinese.

The first character means black, but the second means dark by itself, so this can also be written with the first character dropped.

Dark Angel

China àn tiān shǐ
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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.

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 title is entirely 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.

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.

Holy Man / Saint

China shèng rén
Japan seijin
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This can mean saint, sage, or holy man.

Note: There is more than one way to express this idea. This one really matches "Holy man" because the second character means "human" or "person" (therefore, this could equally mean "Holy woman").

The Saint

China shèng
Japan sei
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the simple, single-character religious form of "saint" in Chinese (also holds same meaning in Japanese and Korean, though rarely used alone like this).

This can also mean: holy, sage, master, or priest.
Note: This character is often used in compound words (words of more than one character) to create further meanings. In compounds, it can mean holy, sacred or divine.

This character is also used as the first word for Spanish and English place names such as "San Diego" and "St. Louis" in Chinese (not Japanese).

In Buddhist context, this can represent ārya or sādhu. And mean a sage; wise and good; upright, or correct in all his character; sacred, holy, or saintly.

The Saint

China shèng zhě
Japan seija
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the religious way to express the idea of "Saint" in Chinese, Korean Hanja, and Japanese Kanji. Some may translate this as "Holy man" or "Holy person."

Holy Mother / Saint Mary

China shèng mǔ
Japan seibo
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the title for the Holy Mother, Madonna, or Virgin Mary as used by Catholic Chinese, Korean, and Japanese people. I think this would be a very cool wall scroll for a devout Catholic who also appreciates Asian artwork and language.

Note: Koreans often put a third character after these two which creates a title that means "Hail Mary," however, this character is not added, or used in the same way in Japanese or Chinese. If you want that Korean title, just let me know, and we'll add that character for you. The two-character title shown to the left is universal, so I think it's the best choice.

Protection

China bì hù
Japan hi go
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is not the most common word for a wall scroll but this is the word for protection in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This is the non-religious, non-superstitious form of protection.

This word can be translated as shelter, shield, defend, safeguard, take under one's wing, to put under protection. In certain context, it means to grant asylum or give refuge and sanctuary.


See Also:  Guardian Angel

God Bless You / May God Protect You

China shàng dì bǎo yòu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is a blessing exchanged between Chinese Christians.

The first two characters literally mean God (The God of Zion). The second two characters express the idea of giving protection. Another way to translate this is "May God protect you."


See Also:  Guardian Angel

Blessings and Protection

China bǎo yòu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the more religious and sometimes superstitious word for protection in Chinese. It's sort of a blessing of protection, and is often translated as "bless and protect," "blessing," or "to bless."

This would be used the protection or blessing that a deity (such as God) would bestow upon you. It is not religion-specific in the same way that a language itself cannot be specific to any religion.


祐Note: Sometimes the second character is written in the form shown to the right. Let us know if you have a preference when you place your order.


See Also:  Guardian Angel

Protector

China bǎo hù zhě
Japan hogosha
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the universal word for protector in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

The first character means to defend, to protect, to insure or guarantee, to maintain, hold or keep, or to guard.

The second character means to protect.

Together the first and second characters create a word that means to defend, to protect, or to safeguard.

The last character means person.

Add all three characters together, and you have a word that means "protector," one who will protect, guard, and keep you safe.

Some will also translate this word as guardian or patron.


Note: Not a common selection for a wall scroll in Asia.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

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.
