Muhammadan Tree
- 57x53.4cm.(image)on62x57cm including border, central portrait of The Tree with the Green Dome and The Kaaba on either side in polychrome gouache, in a box, within a border on white paper mounted on card, borders marked up with printer’s registration marks, titles and decorations in calligraphic Arabic, signed in the image. Nellai 5, GaniArts, n.d., Closed tear on top edge an inch or so into image; that edge also chipped into image-border, printer’s borders browned and chipped, corners worn (not affecting image). Directions on verso in holograph read “In colour Film negative Gurusamy” referring either to a publisher or a reprographic studio. A traditional square geometric portrait that, in line with doctrine, eschews representational images of humans and animals. This is the genealogical tree of The Prophet. Four roundels contain ‘Allah’ and Muhammad’ and a border of diamonds contains a form of the 99 epithets applied to God (though rather confusingly, there is a reference to Muhammad; perhaps demonstrating the confusions that arose in a calendar art creation with a multi-faith workforce).
