Gorgeously captures Gregorian calendar 2018
with Hijrah 1439 / 1440
The moon is observed by millions around the world to mark key events and celebrations. For over a thousand years the Hijra calendar has relied purely on lunar cycles to mark the muslim months and events in the year. The birth of a new moon, marks a new month. Appreciation of these celestial movements and their direct impact in our plans and celebrations is very rare in our modern life. This modest observational relationship is a subtle reminder of our history and place in the universe.
The Qenza lunar calendar carefully captures both hijrah and gregorian years in a bold circular map reflecting historic astronomical illustrations. The generous size and detail captures a centuries old familiar feeling of looking up at the sky.
