"Imaginal Worlds" is the title of this triptych by Hanifa & Jamaludeen Macfarlane. It is the motif which brings together both of their styles in an imaginary landscape. A dhow drifts on a serene sunny sea; an Ocean of Secrets with an endless shore where distant icy peaks bespeak of another world. Neither here nor there, an Imaginal World where all is familiar yet all is strange. It draws on the Persian miniature genre in its arabesque landforms and the geometric designs of Islamic art to produce symbolic patterns. The central motif, a sphere of Qur’anic calligraphy, being the most spiritual of Islamic arts, floats in the zenith of a dazzling, pulsating, starry sky. Sun and moon swim along above a peaceful, multiform world bathed in light.
1. Kufic Calligraphy No. 3
by Fatima Graham - Not for sale.
Adaption from an unknown calligrapher.
Materials: Hand dyed mulberry silk, hand dyed cotton & silk mix, tapestry wool.
Each year for Ramadan I do a meditation piece. It can be needlepoint, longstitch, random longstitch or a combination of these. This one is simple longstitch as this was the second one I did in the same year. Each stitch is done with the chant.
For this piece it was "Allah Hu".
