Nayiri Greeting Card
This illustration is named Nayiri which is a powerful, authentically Armenian name used by any gender.
Historically, Nayiri has been used interchangeably with the name Armenia. In official documentation, the Kingdom of Urartu (590 BC) is referred to as the lands of Nayiri. The literal translation is the land of canyons or river. There are too many different ways to spell Nayiri for me to list here. I’m going with the Nayiri.com version.
The background in this illustration is inspired by patterns in Armenian tapestry and architecture.
