Art Description

Sculpture: Plaster on Other.

This letter is a limited edition handcraft of 227 different letters of the Abjad family. With the spread of Islam, many languages adopted the Arabic script as a primary writing system. Hundreds of new letter designs were created to represent phonemes that Arabic did not cover at that time. The letters were exhibited in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and later were invited by World Trade Centre Dubai to exhibit in World Art Dubai.

To spread the word of Abjad as a living legacy, each of the 227 letters is offered for sale. Buyers can adopt the letter they find visually or historically appealing. The letter is signed by the artist with an authenticity certificate verifying their ownership of the handcrafted letter.

Buyer will receive one handcrafted letter only. The buyer should be aware of the type of handmade works and the defects they come with. The buyer must expect imperfections and a few artistic tears and wears.
