Shamail (accent on the letter “I”; from the Arabic “amulet”, from the Persian “portrait”, “image”) in Islam - a wall panel, a picture-saying of protective and ritual significance. It contains Surahs of the Koran, philosophical sayings, aphorisms, quotes from the poetic masterpieces of the East, combined with an ornamental and pictorial background.
Ink or printing, oil paints on glass or canvas, embroidered on canvas, shamili are always hung out in prominent, honorable places of homes and mosques.
Shamail is not only a special kind of fine art, but also a peculiar phenomenon of Muslim culture, an important part of religious and aesthetic consciousness. In particular, the Tatar shamail, having penetrated deeply into the self-consciousness of the people, has become one of the ways of national self-expression, and is an integral part of the traditional culture of Tatarstan.
