This horse is written in Arabic calligraphy. This is from a famous Arabic poem by Abu Al-Tayeb Al-Mutanabi, “The Stallion, the Night and the Land, all know me”. The words used from the poem, translated to:
“The stallion and the night and the land all know me ***
and the sword and spear and paper and pen
I am the one whose literature was seen by the blind ***
and heard by those who are deaf
Whenever you see the lion’s fang are showing ***
Do not think that this lion is smiling
I have met him while the Indian swords where sheath ***
and I’ve looked at him and the swords were blooded
You were substituted by the by one who is filled with fear and it was created ***
for you admiration that was not even made for animals”
Adding light shows the speedy movement of a horse, with its graceful motion.
