Ships from and sold by EliteCrafters.
  • This handmade one of a kind manuscript contains a fragment from Sappho's poem. Sappho was one of the greatest Greek lyric poets who wrote lyrical poetry famous for its intense passion and description of love. It is handwritten in Greek minuscule perlschrift (based on the style in the late Byzantine era), with hand drawings on high quality paper (emulating parchment paper) using a dip pen (metal nib) and acrylic ink.
  • This manuscript bears the original signature of the artist, date & place created, and a gold coloured Capricorn stamp seal. The decorative motifs are from an attic red-figure kylix, ca 485 B.C. attributed to the Brygos Painter. The Moon emerging from the sea. Berlin, Antikenmuseum, Staatliche Museen Preussischer Kulturbesitz. From the book "Greek Art, Ancient Greek Pots", Ekdotike Athenon S.A., 1996. The Greek text can be found at: http://el.wikisource.org/wiki
  • The English text translation can be found at: www.sacred-texts.com/cla/usappho/sph49.htm. Manuscript Size: Length 100cm, Height 48cm. An autograph note written in Greek and English is attached to each manuscript with information about the script, materials used, source of text and illustrations, and any other additional information considered necessary by the artist regarding authenticity
  • Additional Information: Perlschrift was first used in the 9th century AD and became widely popular between 11th and 15th century AD. During this time the main characteristics of this Greek script, that is still being used today, were established. The script was called 'perlschrift' because the letters combined together in such a way that they resembled a pearl necklace. Please note: This manuscript was not copied nor has the artist conveyed the style from original manuscripts.
  • A lot of time, care and effort were involved to create this exceptional artwork masterpiece so there is a limited production capacity. This is why each manuscript is unique, valuable and a true investment. Although this well-known text may be used again to create a new manuscript, each manuscript remains as a one of a kind creation as it is handmade using a different layout (e.g. colours, text, drawings) by the artist. Made in Greece. Worldwide Delivery 1 to 10 days depending on courier choice.
