Signing & Stamping

Ato

Have been signing and sealing the small limited edition prints this afternoon ready for tonight. This seal was my grandfather’s and his father’s before that and so on. The central character is an ‘A’ or ཨ the first letter of our surname. As a government official he would have used it to sign documents. The silver is dented where the thumb and first finger would have been held. Having never had the chance to meet my grandfather and with no photos or other keepsakes it means so much for me to hold it in my hands knowing he once held it.
