The Arabesque® Wooden Wall Art - Medieval 8th century Umayyad Woodburned Arabesque Design From The Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem


This beautiful woodburned and shaded wooden wall hanging is a tribute to the medieval Islamic woodcarving tradition and to the Umayyad ornament of the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. Several wooden fragments and plaques of beautifully carved arabesque designs and patterns exist from the Umayyad period of rule in Jerusalem in the 7th and 8th centuries. These arabesque patterns are all different and exhibit the merging of Greco-Roman styles through Byzantine influence with the new arabesque patternings emerging in the Near East with the rise of Islamic culture.

This wooden wall hanging that we have made was inspired by one of these Umayyad wooden carvings from the al-Aqsa mosque. It is approximate 10 - 12 inches wide and 16 inches in height. We have also colored it with a blend of high quality acrylic paints giving it an aged metallic patina and green look. This is a gorgeous work of art and we hope it will bring some history and joy to your home as well since it's rich with historical designs and arabesques.
