religious tomb

granada spain bettina way @thewaytobe
For my 1ne post today, I’m going with this religious tomb taken in Granada, Spain. Big thanks to Bettina Way for sharing her picture. Looking at this beautiful Arabic script that is chiseled in concrete makes me look at the graves here in the States in a whole new way. I have found that the graves in the different cities I have visited aren’t really unique to the city they are in. With the exception of New Orleans, where they are above ground, graves are graves. While the lettering is beautiful and the illustrations are always interesting, I haven’t found anything unique about their specific location. I will keep researching though because I’m fascinated with how the letterforms appear on someone’s final resting place.

It’s the weekend! Back at it on Monday!
