Description

Print of an Original Arabic Calligraphy work, "حكمة الفيل" -"The Tale of an Elephant's Wisdom".

English Translation/Context:

We blame our time though we are to blame.
No fault has time but only us.
We scold the time for all the shame.
Had it a tongue, it would scold us.
For no Wolf eats the meat of another,
While we kill each-other without remorse.

The poem explains the state of human-begins. Where time is blamed for our actions, and how humans fail to take responsibility for those actions. Many creatures around us a loyal to one another, yet we as humans segregate one another in religious and political disputes. (its also interesting to note, Al-Shafi'i, the poet, lived from 767 — 820 CE / 150 — 204 AH, yet his outlook still applies)

:شعر إمام الشافعي

نعيب زماننا والعيب فينا وما لزماننا عيبٌ سوانا
ونهجو ذا الزمانَ بغير ذنبٍ ولو نطق الزمان لنا هجانا
وليسَ الذئبُ يأكلُ لحمَ ذئبٍ ويأكلُ بعضنا بعضاً عيانا

The Print is available in two sizes, 8.5x11 and 11x14 Inches. Each print is signed on a Rich Matte Paper.

Happy Shopping!

I absolutely loved this experience. He was so patient, changing my customization a million times and then giving me 3 final options that work with my wedding invites. He is talented and professional and I highly recommend him, especially if you require bilingual wedding invitations or anything else!

Beautifully done! Was expecting slightly thicker paper but once it's in a frame you can't really tell either way. Such a unique piece, was the perfect housewarming present I was looking for.
