Chinese Calligraphy Art in Curved Frame: Heavenly Angel
Chinese characters for "Heavenly Angel" displayed in a horizontal curved acrylic frame, with optional acrylic stand included. Frame size: 8.5" x 5.5" with 4.5" x 6.5" character insert.
This combines characters for "heavenly" (tin) and "protector/messenger" (sh) to form the common word for "Angel" in a biblical sense. FYI: Contrary to popular thought, there are tens of millions of Christians living in China (between 2% to 4% of the population attend Christian churches).
The character is painted in running script style, then printed on acid-free 100% cotton archival paper. A unique curved acrylic frame focuses attention on the character and makes a simple, yet beautiful way of displaying the character on a desk, shelf, or table. Chinese calligraphy is considered the quintessence of Chinese culture and art. The black and white strokes are an expression of the spirit and images of nature and reflect the calligraphers feelings... a balance between the form and the ideological content expressed in a character.
