This is the second artwork of the series of “Surah Ar-Rahman”.
Translation : [And] taught him eloquence. The sun and the moon [move] by precise calculation, And the stars and trees prostrate. (Surah 55, 4-5-6 Ayaat)
It describes how God has taught us speech (and therefore means to express our intelligence). This is represented through the brain and the wooden tablet.
The sun and the moon have a specific course that they follow, not deviating from it at all. To represent this, in the middle I wrote using Arabic writing in a circular style. The stars and the trees both prostrate in adoration and I have tried to portray this through the flowers and the stars on the left side of the artwork.
