Israfil’s Horn

A miniature of Israfil blowing the Trumpet. The Wonders of Creation by Zakarya Qazvini, 13th century.

The archangel Israfil is blowing its horn to announce the end of the world. In the Islamic eschatological tradition, it is believed that the sound of Israfil’s horn will be the final event of history. A cosmo-lyrical event, through which we feel the music of disparity, dispersity, instability, sublimity, authority, epicness, weakness, severity, and the implosion of all asocial connections in every scale.
