NAFAS – MOUNTED & FRAMED
1 in stock
Nafas in Arabic means breath or an instant. It is the indivisible moment in which every atom in the cosmos undergoes a beginning. Everything that exists happens through it and by it. Maaida explores the concept with an interpretation given by Ibn al-Arabi as “nafas al- rahman”, which expresses creation or existence being synonymous with mercy (rahma). Through the Divine breath, the universe is constantly being created, nourished, dissolved, and revived. Thus, symbolizing the interplay of manifesting form.
Maaida, further explores the interplay of the ‘Breath of the Compassionate’ by weaving it into a geometric pattern inspired by one of the oldest examples from Uamayyads found in Damishq (Damascus). She strives to weave together a dream of reviving the golden era of Islamic sciences, thought, art, and design that flourished during the Ummayad and Abbasid Syria.
