King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies (KFCRIS) was established to continue the late King Faisal bin Abdulaziz (1906-1975) in transmitting knowledge between the Kingdom and the rest of the world. The Center serves as a platform for research bringing together researchers and institutions to preserve, publish, and produce scholastic work. The Center aims to expand the scope of existing literature and research to bring to the forefront of scholarly discussions the contributions and roles of Muslim societies in the humanities, the social sciences, literature, and the arts – historically and today.
Here came Chameleontour role in transferring this science and knowledge from the real to the virtual world with a unique experience that is the first of its kind for the King Faisal Center, where we have been accredited to photograph the exhibition “Wahj: Adornment of the Page” (decorated manuscripts), you can visit it from here.
This exhibition showcases examples of illumination and gilding from 60 examples of various types of Islamic manuscripts to provide an aesthetic experience of this amazing craft. It is also divided into four sections: the Qur’ans, manuscript titles, treasury manuscripts, and miniatures.
It is one of the special exhibitions that we developed in Chameleontour. It was a difficult and pleasant experience at the same time, we suffered very much in shooting and producing it in this final and wonderful way, due to a large number of reflections and mirrors, but thanks to our creative and specialized team we were able to overcome all obstacles to come out with the best way for this important exhibition in the Kingdom and the Arab and Islamic region.
And since the objectives of the exhibition are to introduce the types of Islamic manuscripts, to see the most important features of decoration and the most famous calligraphers, and to highlight the aesthetics of decoration and gilding in Islamic art,
For the visitor of the exhibition’s virtual tour, we were able to highlight all the mentioned goals with ease and smoothly, in terms of the indicative tags for each manuscript, and add high-resolution images to each model in the exhibition, with the addition of the explanation for each model separately.
