Written by Catherine on Friday 3 July 2020 in Writing instruments

The Blackwing Vol.3 is a tribute to Ravi Shankar on his 100th birthday.

The pattern prominently features the Om a sacred Sanskrit symbol with three phonetic components that correlate to the waking, dream, and unconscious states of being.
