Congratulating Yuhana Nashmi

We would like to give a massive congratulations to artist Yuhana Ali Nashmi and to ‪Australia‬’s Iraq-‎Mandaean‬ community, for giving a superb public launch on the 18/8/2016 to the exhibition Mandaic Calligraphy and Painting: Inner Light Through an Ancient Alphabet

Mandaic calligraphy is a unique style of art inspired by the ancient alphabet and comes from an eastern dialect of ‪Aramaic‬, the language of Jesus Christ, which is still found spoken in Churches across ‪Iraq‬. Hosted by Liverpool City Library in Australia, this remarkable ‪‎Australian‬ city boasts the largest number Mandaeans living outside of Iraq.
