                                                                Traditional Armenian Hagiography by Artur Tngrian

 image  

Byzantium had its icons and mosaics while the Arabs had their elaborate calligraphy. The formidable Armenian civilization - caught between these two expanding powers - had its hagiography known as Illuminating Cilician miniatures.

   This magnificent art form depicting the animated lives of the saints has been a major part of the Armenian culture since the middle ages. This sacred and protected style of art has passed down through the tumultuous centuries, commonly buried to protect it from invading hordes and genocides.

   The magnificence of the miniatures comes in its use of vibrant colors: rich hues of blues, reds, illuminating gold – and the expressive details of the faces.

    I met Artur at the Echmiadzin Cathedral near Yerevan and was immediately impressed by his humble devotion to his art that emanated from his the soul as both a devotion to God and Armenian heritage.  All paintings signed in back by artist 

 
These illuminating works of art embellish any room with both color and story.
An image - in the case of the Cilician Miniatures - is worth 1000 words.
