halftone woodcut of a Quran
QURAN
Watercolor woodblock print
13" x 13" (33 x 33 cm)

The Quran is believed by Muslims to be a text revealed from God to Mohammad through the angel Gabriel. Respect for the written text and for the book itself is an important element of Islamic religious faith. The Koran is often decorated, but never with figurative imagery.
