‘Dhikr’ – encompassing all religions - Signifying remembrance, recollection – a type of prayer associated with mystical orders – repetitive prayer (remembering the divine), known to be one of the most important rituals of the Sufi orders (turuq) – the ‘whirling dervish’ being symbolic of it all. According to Sufism, each letter of the Arabic alphabet is assigned a relationship between the divine realm and the human world, and the letter ‘Waw’, which is equal to the number six. The entire theme also symbolizes ‘loving’ in Sufi orders – emblematic of the sense of being spiritually elevated.
While working on these craft pieces, I let the ‘way of the heart’ take its course, instead of fixating on one particular arrangement in my mind. I wanted the idea of love, harmony, and spirituality to be preserved in the most untainted form and hence the choice of the medium being raw wooden plaques with unsullied and untarnished bark bordering, which is an ideology primarily seeking refuge in the ‘imperfect’, in short, the ‘perfectly imperfect’, centered around equality, rust, and patina. I have employed decoupage techniques, acrylic paints, and gold leaf foiling work to embellish these wooden plaques and then sealed the surface with waterproof varnish.
