OMNIS MUNDI CREATURA
DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI
This depicts a cross filled with millefleur patterns. Below it is a calligraphic treatment of the beginning of a hymn attributed to Alan ab Insulis. Its first verse, Englished by Philip Stanhorpe Worsley, is:
Like a picture all creation
Standeth for our contemplation,
’Tis our mirror and our book.
Life and death are there presented,
All our pilgrimage imprinted,
Calling men to pause and look.
I drew it on a 3" × 8" piece of calfskin vellum using black, red and blue calligraphers’ ink applied with a metal-tipped dip pens.
