Hello Baha'i Artists! Here is a Facebook group you might be interested in checking out. I am so impressed with all of you. Keep sending in those beautiful samples of divinely inspired artwork. www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=334309786618&ref=nf
Artwork and crafts inspired by the Baha'i writings or Baha'i themes. Postings should be all-age appropriate, constructive, and loving. Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so be open to new ideas and thoughts. This is not a debate or religious discussion site. Please add a description to the work if the relation to the Writings or Baha'i themes is not readily obvious. For more information on the Baha'i Faith, please visit www.bahai.org.
"O people of Baha! The source of crafts, sciences and arts is the power of reflection. Make ye every effort that out of this ideal mine there may gleam forth such pearls of wisdom and utterance as will promote the well-being and harmony of all the kindreds of the earth."
(Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah, p. 72)
"It behoveth the craftsmen of the world at each moment to offer a thousand tokens of gratitude at the Sacred Threshold, and to exert their highest endeavour and diligently pursue their professions so that their efforts may produce that which will manifest the greatest beauty and perfection before the eyes of all men."
(Abdu'l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu'l-Baha, p. 145)
