Ray of the Golden Age Wool Shawl



Armenian illuminated manuscripts date from the Golden Age of Armenian art and literature in the 5th century. With their elaborate designs these manuscripts were not only a means for artistic expression, but exemplified the ever-present importance of religions awareness during that time.

To signify the close relationship of this art form with that of the spiritual experience, parts from the esteemed "Book of Lamentations" of St. Gregory of Narek are arranged with the lettering taken from Armenian manuscripts. They attempt to breathe new life into the remarkable ancient masterpieces of Armenian art and literature.
