Documenting the Meanings Behind Al-Qatt Al-Aseeri Art

 

The artistic decorations in Fatimah’s Museum of Aseeri Woman’s Heritage display the aesthetic and symbolic connotations of the memory of the Southern identity. The triangle resembles the woman, whereas the square symbolizes the completion of the recitation of the Holy Quran, which highlights the importance of the religious dimension of the local community. On the other hand, the comb-like paintings which have the same length reveal the essence of human relations based on the principle of equality.

Creativity Born from Nature

 

The Aseeri woman’s creativity is evident in extracting bright pigments from the natural supply of the Aseer province. The journey of Al-Qatt Al-Aseeri pioneers starts by extracting the green pigment from clovers, black from coal, and yellow from curcumin. The journey is only completed by mixing each color with the gum Arabic to make permanent shapes and vibrant colors that would long last on the walls of the lively Southern homes.
