Quran Rewritten by Hand in Gold and on Silk

Tünzale Memmedzade is a painter from Azerbaijan who was willing to meticulously rewrite the Muslim’s sacred book, the holy Quran only by hand. This time she can make many people mesmerized by her work. Looking at the lavish Quran rewritten by Memmedzade will easily grab everyone’s attention since it’s so captivating. Maybe even if you are an atheist, you will most likely feel that way.

In completing her task of rewriting the Quran with silk ink, this Azerbaijani artist spent the whole 3 years for such meticulous job.

Memmedzade started her project after she did some investigation that even though the Quran had been transcribed onto various materials, it has never been inked on silk. So she had to really make sure that she would not cross any boundary of religious line. And for her job, she had to pick the official version released from the Diyanet, the Turkish Presidency of Religious Affairs to be her source.

Besides, if she refers to this particular source, she can be assured that she won’t have nothing to waste. With this version, she would use a little more than three pints of liquid gold and silver as well as 164 feet of 11.4″ x 13″ sheets of fine silk.
