This commission, for Dave Wilson of Sterling Hardwoods, features the lovely and imaginative roundel calligraphy of Tashi Mannox. It may come as no surprise that the two circles enscript the Tibetan words for “Moon” and “Water.”

Tibet is a region that lies north-east of the Himalayas, geographically set on a plateau.
