Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
Al-Hijr 15, 99
This verse comes from the Qu'ran. The text roughly translates as, "...worship your Lord until it comes to you, the certainty (of death)."
This is printed on handmade paper with a high-fiber content (you will see lots of natural husks and fibers pressed into this paper). The artwork was then mounted to a handmade two-tone silk brocade wall scroll.
The result is a beautiful and elegant presentation of this Islamic calligraphy.
The print was created on a $4000+ commercial giclee printer. I do not currently have a contact for a calligrapher who can write Arabic script like this by hand. If you are a Thuluth (ثلث ṯuluṯ) calligrapher, please contact me, I would love to be able to offer hand-painted versions of Arabic calligraphy (of course, that will cost more, so prints like this will always be a lot cheaper).
