Hand painted raised 3D Calligraphy on digital printed background with a hand applied sand textured border.

The primary literal meaning of the expression "Al-Fatiha" is "The Opener," which could refer to this Surah being the first in the Quran, the first chapter recited in full in every rakat of salah, or to the manner in which it serves as an opening for many functions in everyday Islamic life. Some Muslims interpret it as a reference to an implied ability of the Surah to open a person to faith in God.

Helen Abbas explores the intricacies of contemporary Arabic calligraphy against a backdrop of vintage shades and texture.
Abstract, bold, and visually arresting, the artist used hand-crafted script in beautiful swathes and confident strokes.

On these canvases, hand applied gold ink and paints overlays provide a rich embellishment. With an eye to both tradition and modernity.
