Years ago I studied calligraphy at Umass at Dartmouth, and have created calligraphy pieces from time to time over the years since then. My latest commisioned work through my Etsy shop was a Calligraphy piece featuring a illustration of the Shrine of the Bab which is on the top of Mount Carmel, and part of the International Center of The Baha'i' Faith in Haifa, Israel!

The customer really wanted the words superimposed on top of the illustration of the Shrine surrounded by the terraces and the area surrounding the shrine, so that's what I put in the final colored piece above.
