Employing traditional methods and instruments to create this design, calligrapher Mohamed Zakariya chose a script known in Arabic as thuluth and in Turkish as sulus, describing it as “the choice script for a complex composition due to its open proportions and sense of balance.” He used homemade black ink, and his pens were crafted from seasoned reeds from the Near East and Japanese bamboo from Hawaii. The paper was specially prepared with a coating of starch and three coats of alum and egg-white varnish, then burnished with an agate stone and aged for more than a year. His black-and-white calligraphic design was then colorized by computer.
