Azerbaijani painter writes Quran on transparent silk pages

 

 

Azerbaijani painter and decorative artist Tünzale Memmedzade has transcribed the Quran onto transparent silk pages.

Memmedzade, a 33-year-old artist, used 50 meters of transparent black silk, and 1,500 milliliters of gold and silver inks in the project, which has taken three years to complete.

She reports that she transcribed the Quran based on the official version released from the Diyanet, the Turkish Presidency of Religious Affairs, on silk sheets each measuring 29 x 33 cm.

Memmedzade stated that after investigating further she realized that the Quran had been transcribed onto various materials but never onto silk before, and this was her driving motivation for the project.
