Sacredness and how things become sacred as ongoing phenomena have always been critical issues in my life. In this project I have printed one chapter of Qoran which is about Hijab on the actual Hijab cloth that is called Chador in Iran. This work is targeting the idea of sacredness. I wrote this chapter in Kufi calligraphy style, which is used mostly in Quranic texts in Islamic culture. I computerized it to make a big vinyl stencil to be able to print it on the actual cloth. This way the text that orders Muslim females to wear Hijab and the object which is considered Hijab have become one.
