Ishwar Allah - thumbnail

Artwork from Edinburgh University students

Zulfikar Ali, a student at Edinburgh, has kindly created an inter-faith artwork for the Chaplaincy, showing Ishwar [Shiva] and Allah as one being. "Shiva represents the masculine and feminine aspects of the divine, the spiritual awakening; Allah represents the earth and the universe. Together they are the unity of faith and the oneness of humanity."

Catriona Mackenzie has also produced some beautiful drawings based on religious paintings by Old Masters.
