Narrative

‘Eshgeh toh va voureh toh khorshideh delam rah roshan meekonad’ is the phonetic translation of Persian, meaning “Your love & light ignite the sun in my heart”

 

The design is hand inked using a calligraphy pen, which creates a natural, deep stained ‘tattoo’ effect with the grains of the wood. For this particular board, I recomposed the deck and gave it a ‘split’ for a vivid, emotional draw.
