Islamic Art: Blue Calligraphic Hanging Quilt (spiral Text Of The Throne Verse):
This piece of art is absolutely stunning.
A handmade quilt stitched with Islamic calligraphy. It is made by a famous family line of quilters from the Islamic Quarter of Cairo. Carefully cut blue pieces of textile are hand sown together to form the most famous verse of the Qur'an, Ayat al-Kursi (the verse of the Throne). The verse is written as a spiral text, a common calligraphic style of writing before the printing era. This is a rare and unique piece of Islamic art (especially hard to find in the current tumult of Egypt) and its value will surely increase over time.
