Sikara Inspired: Qur’anic Verse Pendant

While walking through the Khan el-Khalili market in Cairo, Mousumi was inspired by a beautiful modern Arabic verse of the Qur’an. This Sikara pendant reflects, artistically, the first verse of the Qur’an. The pendant’s translation is Bismillāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm, which means “In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.”
