SATU literally means "One" referring to God. The Muslims have 100 names for God (Asma'ul Husna) but all referring to the one God entity. This (SATU) 5ft x 5ft Acrylic on Canvas modernist expression consists of 97 names forming the background of the work and the remaining 3 completing the 100 names form the black centre piece characters: Allah, Ar-Rahman and Ar-Rahim, 3 of the most popular names being used in a Muslim's daily praying ritual or reciting of the Holy Quran. It is almost impossible to find all 100 names in this piece as they are over-lapping. Nevertheless, the appreciation of the 100 names are usually appreciated by Muslims by memorising, thus an art work such as this is not meant to be read but to be felt subliminally and spiritually by God's will.
