This original piece of my own design is free hand drawn and painted. The gold Halkar design surrounding the centre Tezhip design reminds of the first few seconds of the infant Universe.
Created using 18 carat (genuine) gold, watercolour, gouache and acrylics on paperboard.
The size of the painting is approx. 60x60 cm.
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.
