Artizan Designs WW1 Arab Irregulars 1.

Real "Sons of the Desert"! The obsession with camels reaches new heights.
Another nine will follow in due course. 





Okay, okay... my arabic calligraphy is not that good. This banner contains the Shahada, the Islamic proclamation of faith. The calligraphy was found on the interweb, copied, recoloured, shrunk to size, printed out and then overpainted by hand.
God is Greatest!

Fantastic work, bright and full of luscious colour.

Is the banner is hand painted?

My arabic calligraphy is not that good. Daryll. I've just edited the post to explain how it was done.
