Paintings: Om — handwritten calligraphy in golden ink

Calligraphy on rice paper
Black and gold Ink
Mounted, unframed
Size: ~ 49x49 cm / ~ 19x19 inches

This is a calligraphy of a sacred Hindu spiritual symbol Om (alternatively spelled Aum, Ohm, Omm or Omh), handpainted in Devanagari script on a white rice paper in a special golden ink with black ink, using wolf hair brush. This is a rarely found calligraphy technique and media. The finished work is mounted on another layer of rice paper and is ready to frame. It has an imprint of "Calm" stone seal also carved by myself.

In Hinduism, Om is one of the most important spiritual symbols. It refers to Atman (soul, self within) and Brahman (ultimate reality, entirety of the universe, truth, divine, supreme spirit, cosmic principles, knowledge). The syllable is often found at the beginning and the end of chapters in the Vedas, the Upanishads, and other Hindu texts. It is a sacred spiritual incantation made before and during the recitation of spiritual texts, during puja and private prayers, in ceremonies of rites of passages (sanskara) such as weddings, and sometimes during meditative and spiritual activities such as Yoga.
