I’ve been practicing arabic caligraphy this month and despite not understanding all the quotes and phrases that I’ve found on google, I’ve gained inspiration to practise and perfect the art, and have begun by practicing with short words and phrases, as well as incorporating arabic letters in geometrical patterns.
During each of our visits to the middle east, we constantly see a symbol of a hand, known as the Hand of Fatima, which has an eye in the middle which is believed to ward off evil. The hand has always fascinated me and I’ve even collected many items with this symbol. Being bored during the holidays, I tried drawing my own version of the hand.
I also post many of my artwork on instagram, readers can request to follow me here.
