Introducing KOHAR / GOHAR! (Koh-hawr/ Go-hawr)
Kohar means JEWEL. Isn’t that beautiful? It is also my aunt’s name (my mom’s sister) who’s one of the strongest women I know and has been a second mom to me. My daughter Sosse’s middle name is Kohar in honor of her.
The background pattern is inspired from a photo I saw of the top part of a clergymen’s crosier (kavazan), covered in jewels from Armenia, made in the year 1052.
I drew this with pencil and ink and colored it with Copic professional artist’s markers. The background and Kohar are hand drawn separately and arranged digitally on Photoshop.
