A Drawn Prayer

This is not to be missed: A full scale carpet drawn completely by hand using a simple black Bic pen.

Over the course of 15 months, Jonathan Bréchignac painstakingly detailed inch by inch of this prayer carpet. He explored different patterns and drew inspiration from all types of art (French roman, traditional Japanese, native American, Mexican) and also military camouflage and animal patterns, to create an almost seamless mix of different civilizations and religions.

Johan Jeanson explains, "Despite working on it for hundreds of hours Jonathan has still only been able to use up one pen and is now working on emptying a second one."

We admire your endurance Jonathan, and wish you the power to keep pushing the series forward. Amazing.
