Hand painted silk scarf Armenian medieval bird alphabet
Shortly after Armenia became the first Christian country, St. Mesrops Mashtots gave Armenia an alphabet, according the Harvard Gazette's Armenia's Remarkable Alphabet.
Armenia's conversion to Christianity came in the early 4th century, under King Trdat. The article says that upon the king's death, Armenia was reverting to paganism until Mashtots introduced the alphabet and provided incentive to the Armenians to remain Christian.
The 36-character alphabet of Mashtots was a dream-inspired synthesis of various models possibly including Aramaic. Two additional characters were later added; otherwise, spelling has remained unusually consistent.

The colors are fixed and permanent, the hems are hand-rolled and stitched.
It comes with a hand-made gift box, especially made to match the scarf.
Care Instructions: Gentle cycle/ hand wash separately in cold water
with a dash of mild soap or shampoo. Hang on a towel rack to dry. Iron
while damp, use cooler/warm setting.
Dimensions: 57 cm / 150 cm
