This piece is hand painted on gold shimmer dipped paper. From the hand sketched pattern to the gouache and 24k burnished gold leaf, this piece is my dedicated attempt to create Islamic Illumination similar to manuscripts dated centuries ago in Persia and Europe.
This piece was created in the ways of the old masters. It features a floral border sketched with walnut ink and illuminated with gouache and 24k shell gold. The Surah depicted here is “Surah Fatiha” - “The Opener” And is written in a farsi Arabic calligraphy style.
Size 8x10 framed to 11x14 frame.
This work will arrive matted, FRAMED and ready to hang. Framing options include either gold ornate frame pictured or floating glass wooden frame, also pictured. Please message me with special framing requests.
