In this work of art, the famous poem “The Lost Joseph” by Hafiz is written in a particular size. The font size of the inscription is inspired by the traditional atmosphere, yet a modern approach on natural hand-made paper was used. Additionally, the combination of gold and lapis lazuli demonstrates the noble significance of poetry and literature in the art of calligraphy.
