Delightful Illustrations Describe Untranslatable Words From Different Languages

UK-based artist Marija Tiurina—last featured here—has created a series of wonderful illustrations titled ‘Untranslatable Words’.
Commissioned by digital art platform Neon Mob, the collection features illustrations representing words in different languages that often describe specific feelings or situations accurately, and which do not exist in English.
For example, “Age-Otori” is a word used by the Japanese to describe that feeling of knowing you look worse after a new haircut, and “Tretar” in Sweddish is used when you would like a second refill of coffee.
