With hearts filled with sincerity, determination and loyalty, the staff working on the manufacture of the new grid of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him), continue by steady steps, according to the plan, to install the 14 knot-works of the grid that are made of 999 pure silver carat blended by 2% with pure gold, to surround it from all its sides.
Each knot-work consists of 238 silver ball and 36 hemispheres that are joined with each other by 501 handles, called "Zabanah," its height is of 23 lines and 12 lines of balls for its width, surrounded by 18 lateral silver columns.
The silver balls and their handles like the rest of the new grid's parts, are manufactured of pure silver of 999 carat blended by 2% with pure gold , the thickness of each ball is of 3 mm, three times thicker than the old ones, while the 6500 handles are of 6mm each, six times thicker than the old ones. This increase is made to match weights and sizes of the rest of the pieces and also to form a consistent and beautiful design.
It is to mention that we kept for the new grid the same overall structure and engravings of the current one, with few additions, upgrades and modifications, because of its uniqueness design comparing to the grids of the whole world's holy shrines. Noting that the current grid was made in 1964 with funding from the supreme religious authority - at the time - The grand Ayatollah Sayed Mohsen Al-Hakeem. And, that the new grid of the shrine of the Master Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) was manufactured in the workshops of the crafts' factory belonging to the Al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine with high quality, durability and accuracy. In fact it is the first grid which is entirely manufactured in Iraq with Iraqi handicrafts-men. It is also characterized by the originality of its engravings and decorations in addition to the fact that it keeps the same overall structure and engravings of the old one, with few additions, upgrades and modifications, because of its uniqueness design comparing to the grids of the holy shrines in Iraq and in the Islamic world.
