This truly extraordinary collection is among the larger pieces made by Yelimane Fall. They represent 10 of the short Surahs from the Quran, frequently spoken by Muslims during the daily prayers. The incredible detail and colors in this collection make it seem as though each piece is radiating light. The Surahs are Ash Sharh (94), Al Qadr (97), Al Asr (103), Al Fil (105), Quraysh (106), Al Ma’un (107), Al Kawthar (108), Al Kafiroon (109), An Nasr (110), and Al Masad (111). The pieces are paint on heavy kraft paper, and are approximately 106cm by 76cm.
