public_access_description
The Chinese Muslim artist Haji Noor Deen Mi Guangjiang painted this hanging scroll in 2007. The calligraphy in Arabic reads 'Ya Rahman' (O Compassionate), one of the names given to God in the Qu'ran, and often combined with 'Ya Rahim' (O Merciful) when invoking Allah. The words are painted in black ink with large and thick strokes, using a distinct form of calligraphy, called sini, adopted by Chinese Muslim artists to write in Arabic.
