‘Read’ in Horyig Script

Last week it was my birthday and to mark it I had a new seal designed and made by Tashi Mannox.  While it has been made I have not yet taken delivery of it.
Meanwhile i thought I would share it with you and its significance.
This is my second seal; the first had to celebrate my 60th birthday.

This one although coincides with my birthday is more a celebration of my blog and its growth.
Seals take many forms; widely used in the East are becoming popular in the West.Used like  badge to represent a family or organisation.  They may be incised with name or pictorial design representing a a quality or desire for instance my daughter was born on the 8th August 1988 in the year of the Dragon her seal depicts that precious day.  

8-Dragon

My first one says ‘ Goddess’ in Yin script.

Godess


The seal can be used of applied as a signature to authenticate artwork or correspondence or as a badge or icon on Twitter or Facebook as I have.
