HMAYILS are one of the most impressive and emblematic elements of Armenian Christian Culture. As they were prayers, greetings and offers in digests, which had preservative and healing role, they were also used as talismans. HMAYILS were concerning to all life spheres, especially protecting from diseases, fears and bringing spiritual peace. They were written by clergy and were ornamented with famous miniatures and Christian icons. Everyone wanted to have his own talisman, and that was the reason why it was spread among the people. The oldest HMAYILS in Matenadaran is dated in 1474. Constantly exploring and getting inspired by honors of Armenian Culture, Arev Petrosyan created her HMAYIL series, using beauty of Armenian scripts and ornaments, maintaining “talisman” meaning of HMAYILS.
