Maris
​expression

Conceived by Liku Maria, this is the world’s first mode of expression to make paintings accessible to blind people through the senses of touch and smell. It is based on the Maris World Standard Table,1 and expresses color value (lightness) through particle size, and hue through scent. Various colors can be expressed by using different combinations of particles and scents. Since inventing this mode in 2009 and mapping out the Maris World Standard Table in 2010, Liku Maria has used them to produce a steady stream of Maris works.
