Very interesting.

I know next to nothing about these, other than visually identifying them.

Can you say a little more about them, such as who used them, and specifically the relevance of the two types you posted?

Thank you.

The kukei on top is a Long Leaf. Bottom is Bhojpure style.

Here is a link to explain them.
