I've always been interested in what is written on gravestones! A great post! Such a shame that I can't understand what is written here!

I really love arabic calligraphy. Ty Roger for sharing this great set. I like especially #1 - bcoz of the smile of the artist when he saw the photograph ;-) lol - and #4 showing his concentration - he surely forgot that the photograph was still there, in action as well :))
