Kufi Calligraphy

It has been a while since I posted calligraphy on my calligraphy page. Today I would like to present a work in kufi fatimi style featuring a saying attributed to Imam Ali, It says "Fikruka Feeka Yakfeeka" meaning "It is enough to think about oneself" Many calligraphers have written this saying in many styles and this is my attempt in Kufi style. I tried to bring about a symmetrical appearance in arranging the letters without compromising the proportions and shapes of letters and in this work I have designed a new form for the letter "Kaaf" which was never used by early masters. This is from archives and goes back to 2008/2009
