Mongolian calligraphy is the technique of handwriting in the Classical Mongolian script, which comprises ninety letters connected vertically by continuous strokes to create words. Mongolians adopted the Uighur script around the 12th century, and it is written from top to down and columns go from the left to right. From 1946 Mongolians start to use Cyrillic script by Russian influence. Mongolian script and calligraphy has a rebirth since the country’s democratization in the 1990s. In 2013, Mongolian calligraphy was inscribed on the UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding.
