The Arabic language is made up of beautiful patterns, with dashes and dots used to express accents. Putting that with the Quran, which I find beautiful in itself, represents what I find Morocco to be, using stitch to represent the material aspect of Morocco. This is very different to my usual work but I feel that it accurately describes how I felt about Morocco. I chose white fabric for multiple reasons, as it symbolizes purity and peace – often worn when attending Friday prayers. It is also worn when performing sacred rites of pilgrimage and is what the Umayyads chose to wear for their battle standards when they fought the Abbassid during the Caliphate period, and it has appeared on many Islamic flags since. I have then turned it into a cushion to lift the piece from the ground, much like the Quran, to show respect for the religion.
