Angel / Messenger of Heaven

China tiān shǐ
Japan ten shi
Angel / Messenger of Heaven Vertical Wall Scroll

天使 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

Japan dai ten shi
Archangel / Arch Angel Vertical Wall Scroll

大天使 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.

Dark Angel

China àn tiān shǐ
Dark Angel Vertical Wall Scroll

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 not a common 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, or 暗い天使 (kurai tenshi) which is a specifically Japanese title.

Fallen Angel

堕天使 is the Japanese title for a fallen angel.

This can also refer to a demon or Satan.

Dark Angel

China hēi àn tiān shǐ
Dark Angel Vertical Wall Scroll

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.

The last two characters mean angel.

Dark Angel

Japan kurai tenshi
Dark Angel Vertical Wall Scroll

暗い天使 means, "Dark Angel," in Japanese.

The first character means dark, gloomy, hidden, or secret.

The second character is a connecting article.

The last two characters mean angel.

Guardian Angel

China shǒu hù tiān shǐ
Japan shu go ten shi
Guardian Angel Vertical Wall Scroll

守護天使 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").

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.

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.
