The design layout of the prayer rug by May Makia is a repetition of two scales of diagonal grid. Using a laser cut technique, the single roll of blue felt is manipulated with systemic incursions on the smaller grid, creating an arrow resemblance to emphasize the direction of prayer. The final outcome is a rollable Prayer Rug that is fastened by a strand of prayer beads.
The Modern Prayer Rug Design exhibition is open until Nov 30th at the Company House, Msheireb Museums.
The gallery opening hours are
MON-THU: 9am - 5pm
FRI: 3pm- 9pm
SAT: 9am - 5pm
