Artist Illustrates 29 Untranslatable Love Words

I remember kilig so well. I remember a particular moment of it when I saw my future wife across the room at our workplace early in our courtship. Kilig is a wonderful word, so it's sad that it doesn't exist in the English language.

The jewelry brand Vashi commissioned artist Emma Block to illustrate 29 words of love that have no close English equivalents. You can view them here, including words from Urdu, Welsh, Tamil, Dutch, and Hebrew.
