An extra-large handcrafted Islamic design screen-printed on goat-hides that have been dried and cured. The portion having the calligraphy applied is shaved while leaving hair around the borders. 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 of an open fan with "Asmaul Husna" (99 names of Allah) written in Arabic. On the base is Ayatul-Kursi (Verse of the Throne) surrounded by the words "Allah", "Muhammad" and the 4 Khalifahs (Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman & Ali). The top says "Huwa Allahu alladhi laa ilaha illa huwa" (He is Allah—there is no god except Him) and the bottom says "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 Arabic script. 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. The plastic can be removed before hanging or left on as is. This wall-hanging for the Muslim home measures 19.5 x 27.5 inches (50cm x 70cm).
