Calligraphy Exhibition in Nishapur Honors Khayyam

A calligraphy exhibition, on the eve of the National Day of Khayyam (May 17), the celebrated Persian mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, and poet, opened at the Kamal-ol Molk Gallery in Nishapur city, Khorasan Razavi Province.
The exhibits include 35 selected works in different sizes by 20 veteran calligraphists, who are members of the Calligraphers Society in Nishapur, the hometown of Khayyam, Honaronline reported.
The items are created in different styles including ‘Siah Mashq’ (black ink), ‘Chalipa’ (a panel in the ‘Nastaliq’ script), and ‘Qat’e Nevisi’ (short poetry calligraphy), decorated in illuminated script, by artists Abbas Hamrah, Azam Khani and Azam Hamidi.
Omar Khayyam (1048-1131) is widely considered to be one of the most influential intellectuals of the Middle Ages. He wrote numerous treatises on mechanics, geography, mineralogy and astronomy.
The famous ‘Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam’ is the title that the well-known English poet Edward FitzGerald gave to his translation of a selection of Khayyam’s poems, originally written in Persian and numbering about a thousand.
Khayyam is the author of one of the most important treatises on algebra written before modern times, the Treatise on Demonstration of Problems of Algebra (1070), which includes a geometric method for solving cubic equations by intersecting a hyperbola with a circle.
Organized by the local Organization of Culture and Islamic Guidance, the exhibition will run through May 19.
