Marbled Inscription by Mehmed Sefik

marbled inscription by mehmed sefik
What sets apart this framed inscription by Mehmed Sefik (1819-1879) is its marbled border, which is an art form called "ebru". The colors truly shine after all these years. Styled with celi sulus (a calligraphic technique), it reads "Success is only possible with the help of God". Dated 1879.

Dimensions : 38x36 cm.
Estimated value: $ 11,000
