"Star" Japanese calligraphy
"星" (sei, hoshi). It is translated as star, planet, any point of light.
This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script.
Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
生 (life, lifetime, birth) + 晶 (clear, pure, clean)
"晶" means the form of the star.
Something which is clean is born in darkness.
It is really fit to express an opening of the creation.
"Phono-semantic compound "
It is a characteristic of the kanjis.
This character shows it beautifully...
