Armenian Letter art and its Cultural Expressions

Language: English

Armenian letter art and its cultural expressions represents the centuries-old art of Armenian letters, the rich culture of decorating letters, and its various uses. The element is distinguished by its wide range of ornamental scripts, characterised by different shapes such as birds, animals and mythical creatures. Beyond its primary function to create written heritage, Armenian letter art has penetrated almost all layers of society, particularly folk art. Educational institutions at all levels, youth centres and the Armenian Apostolic Church play a key role in its transmission.
