Vermilion Sindoor Kumkum!

Vermilion/Sindoor/Kumkum

Like Sindoor in India

the art and lacquerware of China……

As powdered mineral cinnabar

or the color of a scale insect,

kermes vermilio…………

Between red and rose

a brilliant red or scarlet sky…………

Vermilion/Sindoor/Kumkum

The “timeless” time

of the indigenous Australians

formative creation

perpetual creation

scarlet crimson…………

Like the widely used

art and decorations of Ancient Rome

the illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages

the paintings of the Renaissance.

Some crimson

strong red color inclining to purple

slightly bluish-red between red and rose.

************

The pigments of Ancient Dreams

perpetual “timeless” time.
