Scherenschnitte -- Alhamdullilah




Alhamdulillah is a prayer that translates, "All praises due to God" and is often used in the same way English speakers use "Thank God!" A popular theme for calligraphers, this piece was based on a design in the Diwani style by calligrapher Nasib Makarim, from Lebanon. I first made the lantern as a gift for my husband's sitti in Syria, then decided to make more of them.

This 5 x 7 lantern is a limited edition of twenty. All of the materials used are archival, with acid-free parchment, and each piece is signed and numbered. The price is $200.00. Please email me for ordering information, and please allow four weeks for delivery within the United States.
