Gold Embossed hum
This embossed syllable hūṃ piece was created to illuminate the sacred proportionate foundation of grid lines and central axis of the Tibetan Uchen script – providing a balance and harmonious composition.
Gilding the embossed syllable hūṃ used white gold leaf for the crescent moon and red gold leaf for the sun-bindu and the bottom vowel sign.
To protect the raised body the emboss, this piece is set in the depth of a surround mount, which has be skilfully cut to a decorative pointed top, reminiscent of traditional Tibetan shrine cupboard window frames.
Created in collaboration with Bhutan based Malaya Jewelry design for their new gold, rose-gold or silver hūṃ pendants.
