A handcrafted Islamic calligraphy 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. They are ready to hang on the wall. This design says "Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illa-Llah, Wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan Rasulullah" (I bear witness that there is no god except Allah, And I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah) also called the Shahadah in a beautiful Arabic script. It has black lettering outlined with metallic gold-tone reflective 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. The measurement of the outside of the frame is 8.25 x 15-inches (21 x 38 cm). Crafted by Muslims in Indonesia with recycled/reused goat hides from Islamically-slaughtered animals. As these are hand crafted in small quantities in small workshops with natural materials, imperfections, blemishes or small discolorations may be noticed.
