Mahmoud Darwish Square Kufic Calligraphy Wallpaper


A square Kufic calligraphic design with a quote from a poem by Mahmoud Darwish: ونحن نحب الحياة إذا ما استطعنا إليها سبيلا.


Square Kufic calligraphy is a traditional Arabic visual art that relies on precise geometric proportions. The words and letters can twist and turn and take any direction. The only rule is that the width and spacing must be consistent. The focus of the art form tends to be more on aesthetics than legibility. It visually represents the orderly beauty of the Arabic language.
