The Social “Animals”
This body of work is the contemporary rendition of the zoomorphic/tughra calligraphic tradition. This tradition
was used mainly for rulers, warriors by comparing them to courageous animals as a reference to their qualities.
The words were then composed in the shape of this animal forming a signature or identity of the concerned person.
Similarly, this body of work is based on the colloquial terminology used commonly for individuals as words of praise or
contempt. The titles say what the image shows.
