COLLECTION NO.8

COLLECTION NO.8

Giving shape to sounds-a collection that studies the Russian, Thai, Hebrew, Urdu and Spanish alphabets and identifies a series of figures that those languages use to describe common sounds to all of them: vowels. While Thai, Hebrew and Urdu are alphabets made up by consonants to which, diacritical marks are added to, to generate the sound of vowels; Spanish and Russian use specific letters for each vowel. The array of figures used to represent the same sound in all these languages, served as an inspiration to Aysha Bilgrami to create the shapes of her jewels in this collection.
