Almarsam Alhussaini for Islamic Art

The 'marsam' was one of the really interesting ideas to emerge over the last two years which attempts to use art as a means of expressing the Hussaini message. It provides budding artists all the tools and space need to paint and display their art and everyone is welcome to go see them at work. These are some of the quick snaps I took of the ones that I liked the most. I think the artist was called 'Alsaari'. All the paintings are up for sale. The place is definitely worth a visit.

Another was this breathtaking scene that I came across whilst driving through manama:

Its a life-size sculpted scene of 'almashra3a' in Karbala. The man on the horse is Imam Hussain as he returned to the tent for the final time to bid farewell to the women.

I think they're still on display in Al Marsam HQ in Manama (if they haven't been reserved or already sold). I'm not sure of the address but you can call the following people for more details:

Mr Al Arrayed on 39772377 or Riyad Al Dahaba on 36697707 or Hussain Allawi (39890698)

Prices start from 50BD I think.
