Wahī means Revelation or Divine inspiration: a double reference, to the keystone of the Abrahamic religions represented in the show, and to the source of art.

The word lends itself very nicely to a perfectly regular outline. The golden-red with random splashes of gold, for which I used modern lustres, evoke this powerful creative energy.

A penny for your thoughts...
