Creative artwork represents calendar made by the Báb
The Badí calendar, used by Bahá’ís around the world, is a solar calendar of 19 months of 19 days each. This artwork represents that calendar in a beautiful array of shapes. It is structured as nested hexagons, with the smallest representing one day, the next size one month, and the largest an entire year. The hexagons representing the days are made of lightweight compressed wood and adorned with different images and passages from the Writings of the Báb. The shapes for each of the month have in their center the month’s name in both Arabic and English. The calendar’s structure emphasizes that we all fit within a unified world of humanity.
