المومنُ – Al - Momin The Only Protector, The Only Guardian – The One who gives Emaan (faith) and security. One of the 99 names of the Supreme Divine, this is a unique calligraphy piece, made in a way to give it an antique and traditional touch. Simple yet strong in its message itself; it has been hand scripted with traditional black calligraphy ink, along with Islamic illumination borders crafted with gouache paints. The illustrated calligraphy script is that of ‘thuluth’ – a medieval Islamic style of the handwritten alphabet – a large, elegant and cursive script used primarily on mosque decorations of its times – having borrowed a few of the functions of the early Kufic script. It is also known to have been used for many of the large copies of the Qur’an produced in the 13th Century.
Measuring 46.5 x 62.5 cm, in an effort to further indoctrinate the traditional look and effect, I put up the illustrated cut pieces against a lighter background for depth and an antique look. The framing has also been chosen to complement the overall look – antique/traditional wood carving effect. The Arabic word ‘sajda’ in the Islamic illumination art on the sides itself carries its own significance; ‘sajda’ literally translated as an act of prostrating, bowing down, giving in, meditating; humility and adoration, often in the context of reverence and worship. My hopes and wishes for this piece are to carry the same vibes, blessings, energy, strength, protection and faith, over to its new home.
