Tribute To The Blue Quran. Woodburned and Handpainted Wallhanging Or Shelf Art Inspired By A 1000 Year Old North African Fatimid Manuscript


The Blue Quran is perhaps one of the most beautiful manuscripts from the Middle Ages. The entire Quran was produced in North Africa during the Fatimid period. The original Quran was made of parchment which was dyed blue. The entire blue parchment Quran was illuminated in gold ink. The woodburned plaque we have created here at The Arabesque is made from basswood and stained in a blue color which attempts to emulate the original parchment. The writing has been woodburned into the surface and then handpainted over with gold oil paint. The surface has been protected with a clear gloss varnish. The piece measures 8 x 10 x .8 inches. It is a unique tribute to the Blue Quran and our way to bring a little piece of history to your world.

Beautiful! A continuous source of admiration and contemplation...

This is an absolutely beautiful piece with such a high level of quality, it reminded me of a piece I might see in a museum. The materials, colors, and historical design of a part of the Quran makes a great starter tif discussions for an academic office!

The picture doesn't do this piece justice. It particularly looks good on a brick wall.

Received the blue Quran today and it is stunning! Pictures don't do it justice. I think this has to be the nicest thing I've bought for my house.

It's simply beautiful!
