Zoomorphic Islamic Calligraphy
We were all surprised to see the works of Arabic calligraphy due to the beauty of their lines and the delicate work of composition.
This artistic calligraphy was born and developed based on a restriction imposed by Islam: the veneration of figurative representations is prohibited.
As such, calligraphy is often used to subtly overcome these restrictions, making drawings or artistic compositions that represent animated objects, plants or beings, or simply harmonious shapes, such as symmetrical compositions or geometric figures. These compositions are not intended to communicate a text because it would be very difficult to read, so they usually reproduce messages that the reader already knows as ritual prayers or Koran passages.
