Sword of Antara: Arabic Calligraphy Love Poetry- Limited Edition Print

Details

"Sword of Antara", Ink on Paper, 90x45cm by Everitte Barbee 2016
Limited Edition Giclee Print of 50

Four lines excerpted from an unnamed poem written by the 6th century poet Antara ibn Shaddad are written to form the shape of a curved sword. The text is a macabre twist from the traditional love peom. The text reads:

And surely I recollected you, even when the lances were drinking my
blood, and bright swords of Indian make were dripping with my blood.
I wished to kiss the swords, for verily they shone as bright as the flash of
the foretooth of your smiling mouth.

This poem is included in the seven Mo'allaqat, a collection on seven poems from the pre-Islamic era, widely considered to be the finest examples of poetry from that time.

Every print is signed, numbered and shipped directly from the artist and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. The numbered certificate includes a full explanation and translation of the piece in both Arabic and English.
