The exhibitions combine the Arabic gilded calligraphy in a unique way. There are 12 paintings that include some verses of the Holy Qur’an. The gilding method was used by Muslim artists and was a popular way of decorating calligraphy on walls. Katara general manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti, who inaugurated the exhibition, stated that the young artists have presented a very significant art from the Islamic history.
“The exhibitions would raise awareness about the beauty of Islam and the meanings of tolerance and peace,” he added.
