Snapshot Sunday: The Naxi Alphabet

The Naxi are one of the national ethnic minorities in China.  They live primarily in the Yunnan region of China and comprise one of the few matriarchal societies in China.  They have their own language and script, the pictoral alphabet, as seen below, is a work of art as seen on one of the school walls in Lijiang!
