WILD & WEIRD
wild & weird
‘acaib-ul mahlukat’, translated as ‘weird creatures’, is a richly illustrated 12th century ‘scientific’ text from Persia that reflects the curiosity as well as the awe and wonder our ancestors must have felt when investigating the wildness and ‘weirdness’ of our Mother Earth.
in the following centuries, due to the lack of printing technology, the text was copied by hand and shared countless times, each time flourishing a little further thanks to the colorful imagination of its copier/s at the time.
and just like our ancestors, we wanted to add onto the spirit of these 800 year-old ‘weird creatures’... after having spent many joyful hours with these treasures, we re-interpreted them ourselves.
cheers to the ‘weirdness’ of Mother Earth.
