Uzbek artist Mukhamedali draws inspiration from ancient themes and techniques to create a painting of unparalleled beauty. He relies on the timeless tale of Layla and Majnun to weave an exquisite scene that transports us to a classic story of love and longing. The artwork portrays the connection between Qays ibn al-Mulawwah, the 7th-century Arabic poet, and his beloved Layla bint Mahdi, lost in deep conversation amidst a lush pomegranate garden. The artist also pays homage to his homeland’s revered art of lacquer miniature painting with his use of tempera paints and watercolors on papier mache meticulously finished with lacquer. Set on a chipboard mat draped in faux velvet and embraced by a walnut wood frame adorned with intricately hand-carved accents, this extraordinary masterpiece is ready to grace any space with its captivating allure.
