A crescent moon is an Islamic symbol which tell us Muslims when the month begins and also when Ramadan is approaching. The start of the crescent moon is an Islamic symbol and it was connected with the Muslim world after it was adopted by the Ottoman Empire. It was related to Islam because the lunar cycle is an important ritual and legal role in Islam’s calendar. This symbol is often seen on flags of predominantly Muslim countries. I choose this sculpture piece because I am Muslim and it’s a symbol of my religion. I also chose this because when I look at it make me feel like God ( Allah) is with me everytime. This symbol reminds me of Africa, how the moon and the stars shine so bright that it makes it possible to see anything outside at night. Back in Africa, my friends and I used to go outside at night. We used to dance, sing, and talk about scary late night stories under the shining sky.
