Levhas

Levhas are calligraphic panels for large (jeli) scripts or works comprised of many lines of writing. The term came from the fact that these panels were originally intended to be hung on walls. The formats of most calligraphic works have been developed over the centuries to give maximum impact to the finished artwork and to showcase the various qualities of the calligraphy, illumination, and color. In my own work, I try to achieve novel and nontraditional effects by using unfamiliar color schemes and styles of illumination.
