NIGHT 107 – THE STORY OF KING UMAR ‘IBN AL-NUMAN AND HIS FAMILY

January is a good time to reflect on routines and Buddhism. Inspiration for my work and talismanic shirt series, I’m inspired by lots of scripts

Rules for monks (kammavaca) written with black lacquer on ivory sheets

These are recited at formal assemblies and ceremonies

The Burmese square script is beautiful; more on this to come in future posts

Pali language, 19th century Burma
