This year for our Mawlid Mobile I used a composite of several different Persian bird paintings and sculptures to make the design. I was also inspired by our Conference of the Birds project The Pool of Paradise.
This year I painted the beaks green as they are in the Sira for children The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil.
Our next post on the Mawlid Mobile will give some details on how we made the cloud ornament this year.
Please share your ideas for Mawlid decorating.
