  • Daur Custom Calendar

The Daur People are a Mongolic ethnic group who have historically resided in the northeast of China. Today, with a population of only thirteen thousand, knowledge of Daur culture and arts is rare. Very few descendants of the Daur still speak their language. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has classified the Daur language as endangered in the Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger. Due to long-term political and economic marginalization, the indigenous written language of the Daur People no longer exists.

This project delved into the origins of the Duar written language, tracing it back to the Khitan Language. Additionally, it explored the traditional Daur ornamentation found in Daur handcrafts, aiming to study and recreate these elements to depict Daur costom visually.
