How to KazakhSTAND Out!
DC’s many embassies have a diverse and extravagant architecture.
Each as interesting as the next! The Embassy of Kazakhstan needed
something to show off their beautiful façade and seal to let everyone
know where they were. These beautiful gold dimensional letters
definitely add functional elements to such a pretty facade.
Fun Facts we learned along the way:
Stan is an ancient Persian word meaning “land” or “nation,” and
Kazakh means “wanderer,” “adventurer,” or “outlaw.” Therefore, the
name Kazakhstan translates as “Land of the Wanderers.”
Ancient Kazakhs were the first people in the world to
domesticate and ride horses.
You can spell a lot with these letters!
