Calligraphic work

This calligraphic piece is written in the jali thuluth script featuring a verse from the Surat Hud of the holy Qu'ran which reads, "It is He who hath produced you from the earth and settled you therein."The artist, Mehmed Ozcay studied naskh and thulth scripts with the calligrapher Fuat Basar, whom he met there in 1982. 1986, he began to copy the Holy Qur’an which he completed in 1991 and first published in 1992. That work has played a key role in the development of his mastery of naskh script, and more generally in the establishment of his career as a professional calligrapher.
