In this post, we are going to talk about a very cool museum. First of all, I want to say something about “Heart of Sharjah” where the culture and history walk together. A magic place where you can travel through time visiting several museums. You can check all these Museums in this link http://www.sharjahmuseums.ae/
well… for this post, we are going to see history and art through the beauty of the Arabic calligraphy at the Sharjah Calligraphy Museum. With its curves and style, this calligraphy and your alphabet are unique. With a long history, its lines and design have had some variations over time.
The museum is divided into three parts. The first one is about the calligraphy styles and its metrics such as “Al Thuluth”, “Al Kufi”, “Al Ruq’a”, Al “Maghribi”, and others …
In the second section, a little smaller, we can find some items such as books and beautiful drawings calligraphies and a chronological panel that tells the periods, origins and regions that each style flourished.
At the entrance of the last section, we find several specific instruments to compose the Arabic calligraphy, very well detailed about their use and functions. Also in this section, paintings with the genuine Arab calligraphy art are exposed on the walls.
When you come to the United Arab Emirates visit “The Heart of Sharjah”. Thanks and Valew Valew …
