Calligraphy Norooz Candle
“Love Calligraphy” or “Ashk-hāneh” (آشکانه) is a popular way of decorating candles for Nowruz, the Persian New Year. This style of decoration involves writing romantic or poetic phrases in calligraphy on the surface of a candle. The phrases are typically written in the Persian script and can include poetry, quotes from Persian literature, or expressions of love and affection.
The traditional method of making Nowruz candles is by using hot wax and a special pen called “moshk” (مشک), that is used to write and draw designs on the candle. The candles are then colored and decorated with various symbols, such as flowers and geometric patterns, that are meant to bring good luck and prosperity for the new year.
Ashk-hāneh is a very personal type of decoration, and can be used to express the love, hopes, and desires of the person who is decorating the candle.
These candle are usually used in couple and are a popular gift item during Nowruz, given to one another to celebrate the new year. They also can be used in a family setting, where family members gather around the candle and express their hopes and wishes for the new year.
It should be noted that since the candles are made with wax, they are flammable, so it is important to use them carefully and follow any safety instructions that come with the candle to avoid any accidents.
