Artist's description:

While attending a Sufi ceremony during an art festival, I was fascinated by a chant that repeated two sentences in an endless repetition, like a mantra: Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, La ilah illa-llah…
Here the two circles spell out the two stanzas, and like the music and the whirling dance of the dervishes, the design circles endlessly on the paper.

The design is screen printed, with the gold then added by hand.

Materials used:

Water-based screen print ink and metal leaf

Takbir (2010)
