BAKU---Tunzale Memmedzade, an artist based in Azerbaijan, spent three years painstakingly transcribing the Holy Quran on sheets of transparent black silk creating a beautifully crafted religious text that demonstrates both devotion and patience. "Memmedzade embarked on the project after learning that the Quran had never previously been transcribed on silk. She set to work on 11.4" x 13" sheets of delicate silk, using a total of 164 feet for the finished Quran", according to MyModernMet.com. Calligraphy, an art that has always been a part of Islamic culture, seems to take on a surreal form in the hands of Memmedzade. [link]
