NIGRA SUM SED FORMOSA
DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI


NIGRA SUM SED FORMOSA


This is an ink drawing on a 1 3/4" × 2 3/4" piece of calfskin vellum. I drew it using technical pens and calligraphers’ inks applied with metal-tipped dip pens and brushes. It has an emblem of a fluer-de-lis and the words NIGRA SUM SED FORMOSA, or I AM BLACK BUT BEAUTIFUL; these are from the Song of Songs, traditionally applied to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
