(Inspiration for the painting)
“There are two kinds of intellect; the first is acquired – Thanks to it, you learn like a schoolboy
books, teachers, reflection, concepts, all kinds of sciences.
You learn and your intellect grows superior. But conserving this knowledge is always a burden.
The other intellect is God's pure gift; Its heart is in the breast of the soul.
When the water of divine gnosis jets from the heart; It never becomes stagnant or old or dirty.
And if it can't flow outside, what does that matter?
It keeps foaming up from within the heart.” ( thoughts of 13th-century Persian Sufi mystic - Rumi).
This painting is in a new innovation style of painting I have done. Its specially formulated high impact molding compound applied on canvas board once hardened it was carved on with carving knives, the painting is three dimensional and coloured with acrylic colours. The special quality of this styles is a blind person can also interpret this painting by touching it like the Braille writing they use to read since everything is raised and three dimensional in this painting.
