"Star" Japanese calligraphy




 "" (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...

  4. Etymology of Star is almost perfect. How beautiful it is! In the infinite space, stars are born and gone. But, till the light of a star reaches to our eyes, it takes eons. So, the star we see now may not exist anymore. It is interesting and sad.
