Egyptian artist vies for world record with largest hand painted Koran
An Egyptian man hopes to enter the Guinness World Records with his mammoth handwritten copy of the Muslim holy book. The man is a self-taught dropout who is vying for the Guinness World Records for largest hand painted Koran. Saad Mohammad has hand painted the holy text on a 700 metre paper scroll, which he hopes is the largest in the world. It was a self-funded project.
