Chedai’s AoA

What do you do for an award scroll for a Mongolian persona? About ten years ago I wasn’t sure either. Mongolian manuscripts are rare, especially ones with images or illumination. The script is very unique and there aren’t many examples to peruse.

My friend Beatrice and I were at a loss so we went with something that felt eastern to middle eastern in appearance.
