A handmade item of the Ural masters has replenished the book collection of Pegasus Leaders. The holy book of Muslims is printed on quality paper. A large team of craftsmen from Zlatoust, famous throughout the country for talented engravers, worked on the binding of the Quran.
The binding is made of metal and decorated according to an exclusive sketch with multilevel relief engraving, as well as gold and jewelry stones of bright scarlet color. In the binding design, the masters resorted to time-tested methods of the Zlatoust metal engraving. For the second century in a row, the Zlatoust metal engraving is an original and rare kind of Russian craft. It was born at the beginning of the 19th century as a way of decorating author’s edged weapons made at the Armory founded by decree of Emperor Alexander I.
In the decor of the Quran, geometric contour solutions are combined with elements of floral motifs. This combination of hard lines and plastic of floral patterns, stylized in a lush patterned lining, is typical of traditional oriental ornaments.
On the front side in the central part, there is an onlaid element with the “Quran” inscription.
The book has two fasteners with the inscriptions “Allah” on the top, and “Muhammad” on the bottom. The book is encrusted with phianites (548 pcs.) and decorated with cabochons (6 pcs.).
The Quran in Arabic will be an excellent gift for a person who professes Islam.
