Title: The Mark
Calligraphy star, Shah i zinda, Samarkand Uzbekistan
An 8 pointed star has many connections to Islam and can be seen all over the world. This is one found in the Shah i Zinda complex in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. Shah i Zinda is where the cousin of the Prophet SAW, Kusam ibn Abbas RA is buried. The reason I have entitled this piece "The Mark" is that this location is where he is a mark and a beacon despite the short time he spent here.
