A-Un[あ・うん] Sterling SILVER 925 Earrings

A-Un[あ・うん] Sterling SILVER 925 Earrings

The world shook in the corona in 2020.

It was forbidden to connect people closely.

“Ah”あ-“Un”うん

“A”-“Un” is casually a conversational ball that we exchange in our daily lives.

Are these sounds just responding, or is there any information there …?

I am not sure. But one thing’s certain.

Everyday life is full of affectionate “A-Un” sounds when people understand each other.

Hiragana

The characters of A-Un[あ・うん] use the type of letters “Hiragana”.

There are three types of characters in Japanese. Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. Hiragana and katakana are phonetic characters, and the characters themselves have no meaning. Hiragana was developed as a character used by women in the olden days. It is a soft, tender and gentle character.

In Japan, children learn hiragana first. After that, they learn kanji and katakana.

Hiragana can express emotions with a gentle sound and shape.

“Ah”-“Un” from view of Buddhist thought

Furthermore, in Buddhism, “A” means the beginning of all things, and “Un” means the end. These two sounds express the beginning and end of all things in the universe.

Under the spread of corona infection, we faced “words” and challenged the ultimate design of “characters”.

Such short words were important for people to connect.

We live strongly with simple and affectionate words.

[A-un] [a-hūṃ]

The Sanskrit script of ancient India begins with an “A(阿)” with a wide open mouth and ends with an “Un (hūṃ, 吽)” with a completely closed mouth. Therefore, “A-un” is a word that expresses two opposing things, from the beginning to the end of things in all the world.

Statues of “Komainu” and “Nio” are placed symmetrically on the approach of Japanese shrine and temple. “Komainu” and “Nio” in the shrine and temple are also paired with “A” and “Un” mouths.

Komainu (shrine guardian dog)

  • Utters a sound of “A(阿)”

    komainu a
  • Utters a sound of “Un (吽)”

    komainu un

Nio (two Deva kings) statues

  • “A”gyo statue

    nio a
  • “Un”gyo statue

    nio un

Simple mirror finish

We are particular about the shape of the letters. A mirror finish makes the characters shapes clearer.
Silver plate of 1mm cut.

By making it from a silver plate, the sharp lines are clearer than casting.
