Description : SALAAM
The Arabic word SALAAM, is not simply a word but a reference to complete health or a perfect state.
Greeting another with ‘Salaamualaikum’ conveys to the recipient, wishes of prosperity, wholeness, a state of lacking nothing, completeness, safety from any harm and the hope of being given all that is required for success.
When we start living SALAAM, the beauty and light of it’s meaning seeps into our daily interactions. It reminds us of the responsibility to preserve our own health, it conscientiously coerces us to consider the peace and good health of others and it ultimately gives us permission to question our intentions and actions and how we benefit those around us.
This artist’s hope for the recipient of this piece, is to receive the blessings encompassed in this word as well.
