Sufi Art & Persian Calligraphy
SEMA – Divine Ecstasy – presenting beautiful forms of ‘Whirling Dervishes’ to awaken your inner senses.
The act of whirling is not only meditative but sacred. It teaches us within a moment, what could be a lifelong journey in ‘anchoring within’. This art is energized to reveal what is already in your heart.
“In your light, I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do. And that sight becomes this art.”
The exhibition also includes an exquisite collection of Calligraphy works from Iran.
