Description

Unique calligraphy of the blessing “Gal Golomt” or “Hearth”, which is usually offered to a new married couple. This piece is entirely handmade.

The Hearth (Gal Golomt) represents the fire that passes from generation to generation within a family. It is given by the father to his son during a ritual, when the son gets married and builds his own hearth. Hence the words are considered a very good omen for young married people, and are usually offered to the couple at their wedding. Gal Golomt also carries some other meanings in Mongolian’s culture such as lineage, ancestry, the family, and the home. It is also the hearth, the place where the fire burns in a ger. It is believed that in this fire dwells the spirit of the family’s ancestors.

It is written in the style of Mongol script from the 13th century with broad edge handmade bamboo pen.
It has a red seal representing the sun, mon, and fire on the left, and a  lanz ornament (symbol of wisdom) on the right.

On this calligraphy is written:

Хаан эцгийн тань цахиж асаасан
Хатан эхийн тань үлээж хөгжөөсөн
Хамаг Монгол даяар өртөөлөн авчирсан
Халуун гал голомтоо бадрааж яваарай

The translation:

Your forefather lit the flame of your lineage by striking a spark.
Your foremother enlivened your fire by blowing her love.
Mongolians have imparted and received their own…
May your hearth be warm and prosperous.
