  • An antique wood carved Islamic writing board that was collected in Timbuktu, Mali in 1952. The collector has written a note that explains that throughout Western Sudan Qur'anic schools educate their pupils in Muslim philosophy and the art of calligraphy using these Koranic Boards with the writing in ink or charcoal so that they could easily be washed off. Due to the fact that Muslims believe the Qur’an to incorporate the word of God/Allah as revealed to the Prophet Mohammed, the Qur’an and the words in the Qur’an are handled with a great deal of respect. It is believed by some that the words themselves hold mystical properties and religious scholars are sometimes consulted by those wishing to ward off the evil eye. During these consultations words and diagrams were drawn on the board and then washed off and drank by the person who. As a result of this the boards are prized as it is the believed that the greater their useage the greater their power. Probably dating from around the end of the 1800s or early 1900.
