Like Sindoor in India

or the color of a scale insect

kermes vermilion…………

Between red and rose

a brilliant red or scarlet sky…………

Vermilion Sindoor Kumkum.

The “timeless” time

formative creation

perpetual creation

scarlet crimson…………

Like the widely used

art and decorations of Ancient Rome

the illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages

Some crimson

strong red color inclining to purple

slightly bluish-red between red and rose.


The pigments of Ancient Dreams

perpetual “timeless” time.
