Giraffe of Damascus زرافة من دمشق

Dimensions of Original Piece: 44x33cm

A giraffe is depicted using only the letters and shapes found in the Diwani Djali Arabic script. The text reads; “Syria needs trade sanctions like a giraffe needs a throat infection.” The text is written exactly twice and in order. The text is first written with thicker letters beginning in the face of the giraffe and ending in the tail. The text is then repeated once more in the belly and four legs of the giraffe.
