Turkish artist carves Qur’anic verses on fig seed

"I have fitted Surah Al-Ikhlas on the fig seed."


A Turkish micro-sculptor has produced the smallest calligraphy of Qur’anic verses carved on a tiny fig seed, Anadolu Agency reported.

Necati Korkmaz used spider hair to write the verses and later retouched his art using the sting from a bee as a scraping tool.

“I have been working on it for six months,” he told Anadolu. “I have fitted Surah Al-Ikhlas on the fig seed.”
