Artwork by Lord Richard MacLeod

The Premise: The artwork is based on the Verse 11 of Chapter 66 of the Holy Quran, which speaks about the wife of the Pharaoh of Egypt, who prayed to the Lord to build her a house in Heaven. This is a woman who came from a noble and wealthy linage, married to the Pharoah was so abusive that he finally killed her. She knew she had no way out but death, so she prayed for her Lord to "build her" a house in heaven.

The Structure: The painting is an arch. The arch is in royal purple and in the arch it's pink. The arch is built with verses of patience from the Quran. written in different scripts including the script I designed Queen Elizabeth II (QEII). Inside the arch is the little corner where the Queen was praying to the Lord. Her prayers in pure white, done in a trembling and almost shaky hand, to express the Queen's sadness and agony. Within the arch are many little letters, which represents all of the people in her court, her life and her mind.
