Ocean Spirit, Whale Design
The Ocean Spirit, Whale Design is inspired by the ongoing dangers facing our oceans and the human impact on the health of the ocean overall and the ecosystem within them.
Humans' agricultural and industrial activities result waste that goes through water streams to the oceans. This waste comes in many forms including plastic, chemical, and metals. Fish and other living organisms suffer greatly and gradually drift towards extension. Not just waste that harms the oceans; extensive fishing and whaling contributes to the struggles in the oceans. I strongly believe that humans have the moral responsibility to protect and rehabilitate the ocean.
The Arabic calligraphy writing "لنحمي محيطاتنا" was the literal translation of "Let's protect our oceans". The whale and flower symbolises the beauty of the ocean and its creatures.
Arabic writing is usually viewed with suspicion and fear as many people associate it unjustifiably with terrorism. Thus, through showing the beauty of Arabic writing and Arabic calligraphy via printing it on hippie T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, tank tops, mugs, canvas, tote cotton bags, and mouse pads; we hope to change the perception of Arabic writing towards admiration and appreciation.
