An early sketch (1956) by Weidjuret of the winter road between Memmegehha and Hwna.
Weidjuret was a Mahhalian politician and author, born September 15, 1900, in Rewk Mahhal, and died September 13, 2000, in Hwna, Puh Kingdom. Like most Mahhalians, he only had one name, but ancestrally he belonged to a small land-holding clan named Memmegehha in the remote, downcoastal part of Hwna Municipality. Thus when he was required to, in foreign countries, he did as most Mahhalians and listed this clan name as his "last name." This is why many international editions of his writing and translations often incorrectly cite his name as Memmegehha.

Weidjuret was a noted politician, translator, author and artist, who is best known within Mahhal for having been the youngest Prime Minister in modern Mahhalian history, but is best known outside of Mahhal for his role in translating, interpreting and popularizing a vast swathe Mahhalian literature and culture for non-Mahhalians. This latter was possible because he was raised and educated abroad (in Wiwaxia and the Ardisphere, and thus was one of only a few Mahhalian intellectuals to be truly multi-lingual and "multi-cultural." Despite his foreign upbringing, however, he was also a committed nationalist and patriot, thus rather than deprecating his native culture, he worked hard to disseminate positive views of it in a time when for most of the world Mahhal was an unknown cypher.
