Maa Shaa' Allah!

On this project you can see a rather modern calligraphy of the arabic expression "Maa Shaa' Allah", which is used in the presence of Beauty and Goodness, literally meaning '(this is) What Allah has wished'.
It is exclusively used to express Joy or Satisfaction. So if you like this project you can say out loud "Maa Shaa' Allah!" just as you would say Fantastic! or Brilliant! (Any will do actually...).

The stone is of natural scuplture.
The wood is plywood + varnish.
The pattern was widely inspired by the brilliant work of Husamettin Yivlik founder of the Seljuk Workshops of Istanbul, Turkey : http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/Veranda/7222/#top
