2021 Apr 07

On April 7, 2021, the calligrapher Naila Lotfi presented an Iranian calligraphy artwork to Seyyed Nasser Tabai, vice-president of the Ibn Sina Foundation.

The artwork was created jointly by Naila Lotfi (concept and design) and Nasser Tawoosi, a renowned Iranian calligrapher (calligraphy), using oil, acrylic and goldplating technique.

The canvas features the words 'Fatima az-Zahra' written in Arabic. The calligraphy resembles a raindrop on the sky background. Golden and blue hues were chosen for a reason. Naila said: "A raindrop is the life-giving force that brings Fatima az-Zahra (which means “radiant, shining” in Arabic) into the pure and clear space, surrounded by love, care and respect.

This bright and meaningful work will definitely become a centre-piece of the Ibn Sina Foundation’s collection.

Naila Lotfi is an artist, mosaicist, calligrapher.

Nasser Tawoosi is a doctor of philosophy, member of the Supreme Council of the Iranian Calligraphers' Association, calligrapher, art conservator, expert in manuscripts
