Shamail (accent on the letter “and”; from the Arab “guardian”, from the Persian “portrait”, “image”) in Islam - a wall panel, a picture-saying of security and ritual significance. It contains surahs of the Koran, philosophical sayings, aphorisms, quotations from poetic masterpieces of the East, combined with an ornamental and picturesque background.
Made in ink or printed, oil paints on glass or canvas, embroidered on canvas, shamails are always hung in prominent, honorable places of dwellings and mosques.
Shamail is not only a special kind of visual art, but also a peculiar phenomenon of Muslim culture, an important part of religious and aesthetic consciousness.
