Riyadh - SPA

In order to preserve the centuries-old tradition of Islamic calligraphy and promote awareness about this rich form of art, the Pakistan Embassy in Riyadh organized a high-profile show, which was inaugurated by President of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA) Prince Sultan bin Salman bin Abdulaziz on Monday night, Arab News reported today. The exhibition, which is described as “a first step in an ambitious plan to boost cultural cooperation between the two countries,” features 200 rare pieces by 20 master-calligraphers of Pakistan. Speaking after formally cutting the ribbon to mark the opening of the calligraphy exhibition, Prince Sultan bin Salman said: “In my humble assessment, I can tell you that the calligraphic pieces displayed in the exhibition rank with the best works of art from Saudi Arabia, Turkey, other parts of the Middle East and Islamic world at large in terms of style and content.” He said the exhibition features the best works of Pakistani calligraphers, which in fact provide viewing joy to art lovers in general. Pakistani Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Mohammad Naeem Khan accompanied Prince Sultan bin Salman and other Saudi officials in taking a round of the show to see the calligraphic works. Speaking to reporters after taking a round of the exhibition, Prince Sultan bin Salman said Islamic calligraphy was yet another link binding the two countries that also enjoy strategic relations.
