Can anyone decipher the writing in these images? They were sent in by a visitor to Omniglot.
This is highly calligraphic art using Tholoth style. The left image is in fact mirrored.
I would need more time to be able to read it (but it can be non-Arabic as well because the art depicts a dancing man, common in Sofism way).
I think it is not Arabic… could be Turkish or Farsi. I don’t recognize any quranic phrases, so it might be as well lines from a poem (and it could be one of the poems of Mathnawi, or Masnawi).
I can’t read (Tholoth) calligraphy, but if you can transcribe it in Naskh, I might be able to help decipher it! :-P
