The wife and kids left me a bachelor for a couple weeks while they went to see family.  So I cleaned most of the house, listened to some lectures about particle physics and some about religious studies, and got to work on a new art project.  These things usually take five months at a bare minimum, but since I had so much extra time on my hands, I’ve been cruising through this thing:

This is a wedding present for my youngest brother, who will have been married three years this October.  I figure by this time he’s probably pretty serious about his wife, so it’s safe to give him a present.  (My older brother is getting married this summer, so I’m really far behind.)

This is my tenth opus.  The languages in the previous works have been, in this order: none, Arabic, Italian, Hebrew, Arabic, Hebrew, Japanese, Hebrew and Arabic.  This one could have been the tie-breaker between Arabic and Hebrew, but instead I took it in a different direction and used an Old Persian Cuneiform text from Behistun, Iran, carved by Darius I, the third Achemenian king.  The horses on either side of the text are from a relief sculpture at Persepolis, Iran, also built during the Achemenid period, chiefly by Darius.

The image quality is poor because I had to take the shot with my phone.  The wife took our camera when she went on summer vacation.  So this is what you get to deal with.

I think there is a grammatical tense error on the ninth line.

I think there is a grammatical tense error on the ninth line.

Yeah it should say “…rollinG in the deep”, instead of the more familiar “rollin'”.

Yo.
