Arabic calligraphy


In a previous post someone well spoted that I was playing with “Arabic” numbers, which are in fact Indian numbers (the circle means 5 and the dots are zeros.) It’s the Westeners who use Arabic numbers such as: 1,2,3.

I’m fascinated by the look of the Arabic script. It’s out of this world. If Spielberg would have invented a writing for a new planet it may have been similar in looks to the Arabic script.

I think Arabic calligraphy is a form of art that has superseeded any other culture in its category. It’s highly complex and has many layers of meaning.

I won’t to go into details. You start doing that here if you wish. Allow me to just touch upon the subject and show you a few interesting examples.
