Tazhib (Illuminated manuscript)
A so-called illuminated manuscript is a manuscript in which the text is enriched with decorations such as for example the initials, borders, and miniature illustrations. In the most rigid definition, the term refers to manuscripts decorated with gold or silver but in common usage the term refers to any decorated or illustrated manuscript. Islamic manuscripts can be referred to as illuminated, illustrated or painted works.
Teachers and craftsmen in this field use this art in various books to make the golden pages of literal and religious texts, adorned with arabesque or floral motifs, more beautiful.
Tazhib is a traditional Persian art form that involves the application of gold leaf to paper or other materials to create intricate and ornate designs. A Tazhib Haft Seen set is a traditional table setting used during the Persian New Year celebration known as Nowruz. The Haft Seen table includes seven items that start with the Persian letter “sin”, as well as other traditional items such as candles, flowers, and pastries. Some common items that may be placed on the Haft Seen table include: sprouts or grains (symbolizing rebirth and renewal), a sweet pudding made from wheat germ (symbolizing affluence), dried fruit (symbolizing love), garlic (symbolizing medicine), apples (symbolizing health and beauty), sumac berries (symbolizing the sunrise), and vinegar (symbolizing age and patience).
A Tazhib Haft Seen set would include items that have been decorated with Tazhib designs, often using gold leaf. The set may include items such as bowls, plates, cups, or spoons that are used to hold or display the items included in the Haft Seen table setting. A Tazhib Haft Seen set may be purchased at stores that specialize in Persian or Middle Eastern goods, or it may be handmade. It is often used as a decorative item or as a gift during the Persian New Year celebration.
