Calligraphy says "Each one acts in a manner reflecting his own character and personality" Al-Isra 84.


This beautiful calligraphy is written with 24 carat gold using reed pen by calligraphy master Hanifi Dursun and free hand drawn and painted by Nagihan Seymour. It is in classical tezhip style painted with hand prepared gold.


Created using 23 carat (genuine) gold . Size is approx. 45x45cm.


This symmetrical art type is called "Tezhip" illumination which means ornamenting with gold, hence gold is one of the main material used in my paintings.

The gold is burnished in a way as to give a beautiful shine which catches the light in different ways throughout the day illuminating the pattern almost giving it life.


Please note the colour may vary slightly due to the nature of photography.
