Kufi Script

Posted on Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010 at 8:20 am


The writing on the wall. Village a few hours outside of Agadir on the way to Tafraoute. This kufi calligraphy was painted on a wall of what I guess was a residential home.  I had my friend, Mostafa, stop along our journey so I could look at it with more detail.  There are many types of Arabic calligraphy styles but Kufi is my favorite; it was the dominant writing of holy men during the dawning of Islam.

    Dear Christine,

    This is an amazing photo.
    I also love Kufi style. I’m practicing it every now and then.
    I haven’t been to Morocco yet.
    Your photo made me want to cross the ocean and get there right now.
    I can feel the desert and smell the camel;-) So lovely.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Love to you.
