Angel

Japan anheru
Angel Vertical Wall Scroll

アンヘル 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
Angel Vertical Wall Scroll

安琪兒 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
Angel Vertical Wall Scroll

安赫爾 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. 安赫爾 is also the form commonly used for the masculine Latin name Ángel.

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

China dà tiān shǐ
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.

Fallen Angel

Japan datenshi
Fallen Angel Vertical Wall Scroll

堕天使 is the Japanese title for a fallen angel.

This can also refer to a demon or Satan.

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").

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

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.

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.

God Bless You / May God Protect You

China shàng dì bǎo yòu
God Bless You / May God Protect You Vertical Wall Scroll

上帝保佑 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."

Holy Mother / Saint Mary

China shèng mǔ
Japan seibo
Holy Mother / Saint Mary Vertical Wall Scroll

聖母 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.

Blessings and Protection

China bǎo yòu
Blessings and Protection Vertical Wall Scroll

保佑 / 保祐 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.

Protection

China bì hù
Japan hi go
Protection Vertical Wall Scroll

庇護 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.

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

庇護 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.

Protector

China bǎo hù zhě
Japan hogosha
Protector Vertical Wall Scroll

保護者 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.

The Saint

China shèng
Japan sei
The Saint Vertical Wall Scroll

聖 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: 聖 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.

聖 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
The Saint Vertical Wall Scroll

聖者 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 Man / Saint

China shèng rén
Japan seijin
Holy Man / Saint Vertical Wall Scroll

聖人 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").
