The calligraphy presented depicts in the composition whirling dervish (sufi) and 'Heech' (which means “nothing” in Persian).
In Sufism, God created the world out of nothing and so nothingness is everywhere, in every part of the universe and within all of us. Heech is a metaphor from the Sufi tradition and signifies a variety of concepts, such as the dissolution of ego, the unity of all things through nothingness, and accepting one’s nothingness as a way to acknowledge God’s existence.
Sufi whirling (or Sufi spinning) is a form of physically active meditation which originated among Sufis, and which is still practiced by the Sufi Dervishes of the Mevlevi order. It is a customary meditation practice performed within the worship ceremony, through which dervishes (also called semazen, from Persian ) aim to reach the source of all perfection. This is sought through abandoning one's nafs, egos or personal desires, by listening to the music, focusing on God, and spinning one's body in repetitive circles, which has been seen as a symbolic imitation of planets in the Solar System orbiting the sun.
