Elegy to Manuscripts Silk Scarf



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 religious awareness during that time. To signify the close relationship of this art form with that of the spiritual experience, excerpts from the esteemed “Book of Lamentations” of St. Gregory of Narek are arranged with the lettering taken from Armenian manuscript work and adorned with motifs from these manuscripts. They attempt to breathe new life into the remarkable ancient masterpieces of Armenian art and literature.
