There are a lot of mesmerizing Muslim temples. This time it’s a lavish Quran that grabbed everybody’s attention. Azerbaijani painter Tünzale Memmedzade spent 3 years meticulously rewriting Quran by hand. The result is captivating even if you’re an atheist.
Rewriting Quran In Gold On Silk
Memmedzade started her project after investigating that, even though the Quran had been transcribed onto various materials, it has never been inked on silk. She took the official version released from the Diyanet, the Turkish Presidency of Religious Affairs, as her source. She used a little more than three pints of liquid gold and silver as well as 164 feet of 11.4″ x 13″ sheets of fine silk.
