ॐ Om

This is a print of the sacred Om symbol (sometimes romanized as "Aum"). This symbol is used in various Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Most will associate this as a mantra and mystical sound of Hindu origin.

This is printed on handmade/handpressed Chinese xuan paper with a high-fiber content (you will see lots of natural husks and fibers pressed into this paper). The artwork was then mounted to a handmade two-tone silk brocade wall scroll.

The result is a beautiful and elegant presentation of Om.

The print was created on a $4000+ commercial printer with German UV-resistant ink (however, don't hang it in direct sunlight if you want it to last for several years). The fine lines and complex geometry would make it impractical to paint this artwork by hand (or at the very least, it would cost 3x more if inked by hand).
