The Museum Exhibit of the Sarika Artifacts


The Sarika ArchWorks

The Sarika were an ancient mysterious race of beings. As far as we can know from the translations of the now famous manuscript, the Sarikanica, they originated from Trifaetra, the hourglass galaxy. We have found evidence of their civilization on many worlds throughout that galaxy but nowhere except on the small planet of Satashi have the great archworks been found. If you turn your attention to the screen on the left you will see the Sarika ArchWorks, the biggest and most wonderful of all the archworks on Satashi.

The Sarika seemed always to build these great works as mirrored. Researchers have also found other minor works, emblems, tapestries, etc. where the mirrored theme is present. In fact there has been no work of the Sarika that does not have it.

Any Questions?


The Star Watcher's Shawl

The Sarika wore shawls to indicate their purpose and status within their society. Here you see the Star Watcher’s Shawl which marks the wearer as an astronomer/astrologist.

As with all the work of the Sarika notice the detail, depth and texture of the work. We have yet to unravel all the symbolism used. The Sarikanica is still being studied and there is hope that soon more insights will be found.

Any Questions?


The Room of Five Hundred Stairs Shawl

This is one of the Sarika shawls that only a partial reference was made in the Sarikanica. It seems that it has some significance in relationship to a ritual performed during the Hitakanti Festival and the wearer was perhaps the one performing the ritual. The Five Hundred Stairs may refer to what the Sarika call the Stairway to Sorn. Sorn in Sarika mythology is the place of wholeness or oneness.

As with all the work of the Sarika notice the detail, depth, texture and symmetry of the work. We have yet to unravel all the symbolism used. The Sarikanica is still being studied and there is hope that soon more insights will be found.

Through the Watcher's Window Shawl

Here is another of the many Sarika shawls that were found on Satashi. It is thought that thousands of different types of shawls exist each indicating the purpose and status of the wearer. The meaning of this one is still undiscovered. Hopefully the Sarikanica will eventually be fully translated and studied and our understanding of the symbolism in the Sarika works will be understood.

The Watcher's Dream Tapestry

Among the many artifacts found on Satashi there have been many tapestries found. This piece is definitely related to the previous piece. It seems so far that each of the positions and status levels of the Sarika had their own sets of shawls, emblems, and tapestries. It is also mentioned in the Sarikanica that there were other pieces of work, such as stars, pinwheels and badges however none of those have yet been found.

The Watcher's Dream Emblem

Emblems were also used as the shawls were used by the Sarika to differentiate individuals within their society. Each group had it’s own shawl, emblem, tapestry, badge, pinwheel and star. The Sarikanica is still in the process of being translated and it is hoped that is completed and more artifacts can be found our understanding of this complex society and their work will be brought to light.

The Star Emblem

Now we come to the last artifact in our exhibit. The Star Emblem as with all artifacts indicative of the wearer’s status and position within the Sarika society. The Sarikanica as mentioned before is not fully translated and it is hoped with full translation the meaning of all the artifacts found will come to light.

You will notice that there is a common theme with all these artifacts. The forms and colors used are variations of what seems to be one original theme. Researchers have found that there are groups of status indicators (shawls, emblems, tapestries, stars, badges and pinwheels) each having it’s own theme. The Sarika ArchWorks has been found to be the theme for the pieces we have in our exhibit.

Well this brings us to the end of our tour. We hope you enjoyed yourself and learned a little about the Sarika and their art. If you’re interested our museum store has items available for purchase relating to this exhibit. We share a portion of the proceeds to the continued work related to the Sarika. Any donations or volunteer help would be graciously accepted.
