Artistic Expressions

A small sample from among the countless artistic expressions created by individuals and communities around the world for the occasion of the bicentenary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh.

Paintings representing the “Twin Luminaries”, the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh

The two circles are characteristic of the Sun on the horizon leading humanity to light, each encompassing a piece of Bahá’í history. The blue represents the vast ocean in which Bahá’u’lláh’s father dreamt of Him with fish upon His locks of hair and the green is inspired by the green turban worn by the Báb as a radiant youth.
