Square Kufi patterns are often used in mosques for Qur’anic verses or Islamic sayings. It is very rare to see square kufi patterns created out of Christian bible verses or Christian sayings…

Last Sunday I was in the protestant church and I noticed this amazing big wooden cross created from square kufi pattern.

A Lebanese Christian Arabic calligrapher named “Istfén” created the square kufi pattern in 1995.

I did not have my camera with me. So I took some pics with my mobile cam. I will try to take some better pictures and post them instead of these.
