Thank you for something I find quite beautiful and wonderfully engaging, especially the expressions on the faces of the people and peculiar creatures. The carefully drawn animals, plants, birds, butterflies, snails, and caterpillars are delightful with their emotionally satisfying saturated colors. Interesting to be unable to read the calligraphy but to be able to "read" the pictures, as if the colored drawings are the words, and the words are the decoration.


Amanda, thank you for your sensitive and insightful comments. I think you saw these much as the early illuminated manuscripts were intended to be seen by unlettered believers!
