Ayat al-Kursi in Maghrebi script with detailed illuminated border
1m x 1.5m
This commission piece is hand painted on a handmade khadi paper, hugely inspired by the traditional borders in Islamic Illumination. Materials used in this painting are gouache paints and 24k genuine shell-gold. An intensely detailed border work with carefully selected colours to compliment the Maghrebi script and client's wish for the neutral tones.
Maaida has done her own research and study in obtaining a prescise understanging of the Maghrebi script as a calligrapher.
