Arabic script engraved in a knife blade

In this illustration I had to draw out the fine engravings on a knife from Egypt. The script engravings on the knife are more doodling than actual text, but still resemble Arabic writing. The larger lettering near the handle is legible script.

Tibetan script on the base of statues

This is another assignment I did for the AMNH, looking at scripts on the base of statues. It's an examination of Tibetan script and whether or not it is actual script, a doodle or decoration.
