Tied to hand-carved wood frames in a crisscross pattern with white cotton string. Frames are treated with a brown wood stain. This design is a silhouette of a man sitting Jalsa (sitting position of Muslim salat/prayer) saying "Ash-hadu an la ilaha illallah, Wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan rasulullah" (I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, And I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah) in the form of a seated man in Jalsa position. Above are written the words Allah & Muhammad as well as "Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim" (In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful). It has black lettering outlined with metallic gold-colored glitter. This artwork is enclosed in a clear plastic that protects the hide from dust and has art carton paper applied to the back with tape and staples. It is ready to be hung on the wall.
