My friend Zulaa O from Mongolia sent me this wonderful piece of Mongolian calligraphy as a New Year’s greeting–appropriately, as it says “Happy New Year” in classical Mongolian bichig characters.
I went to work with a nice piece of pau amarillo, or yellowheart, and came up with this rendering:
Don’t worry–there’s a much better photo coming soon, from the amazing Tom Way. But I’d like to attribute my work to the original calligrapher, whom I suspect may be Sukhbaatar Lkhagvadorj.
Does anyone know? Has anyone got contact information for the artist?
