Part of the world’s largest Holy Quran is all set to be displayed in the Pakistan Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.
For the first time in more than 1,400 years of Islamic history, Shahid Rassam, an award-winning artist and former UAE ex-pat, will display Surah-e-Rahman cast on a canvas with aluminum and gold-plated lettering. From January 24, the installation will be on display outside the Pakistani Pavilion.

Holy Quran on Gold and Aluminum canvas
Traditionally, Quran has been written on cloth, paper, and leather but this Pakistani artist has made history by writing verses of the Holy Quran in aluminum and gold. Indeed, a remarkable example of dedication and enthusiasm.
