EtymologyEdit

From Old Armenian արհեստ (arhest), which merely is a later spelling of արուեստ (aruest). In Old Armenian there was no distinction between those two. In modern literary Armenian արհեստ (arhest) is used for “handicraft, trade” while արվեստ (arvest) is reserved only for “mental creation, art”.
