<br><br>I thought I should share this nice wrought iron piece from Beit al Koran (House of Koran).<br><br>As you probably know up to recent times pictures and illustrations of humans or animals was banned in most parts of the muslim world. So all the information that could've been communicated with pictures needed to be incorporated into the writing itself. That's why all the different styles and schools of callygraphy developed. The style also set the mood and the context of the text, besides it's obvious meaning.<br><br>This example is a special style, called zoomorphic calligraphy, where the calligraphy is specially rendered into the shape of an object and mostly animals.<br><br> Here is a desktop version in 1152x870 size if anyone interested<br><br>http://raszl.net
