The image in this colour original is created using only the Diwani Jali Arabic Calligraphy script from the poem â€˜Lizardâ€™s First Law of Inertiaâ€™ by Scottish Poet, Emily Ballou. The poem is written exactly once from head to tail in the body of the lizard. While the part in the lizardâ€™s front claw reads â€˜Lizardâ€™s first Law of Intertiaâ€™, the text in the circle (and just above it) reads: â€˜(Passage from) The World According to Lizardâ€™. The poem was translated into Arabic by Mazen Maarouf and Lauren Pyott. The original English, and Arabic translation can be seen at the bottom of this description.
This design, originally in black and white, was commission by Reel Festivals to accompany their poetry publication featuring contemporary poets from Lebanon, Syria, and Scotland, and was featured on the cover of Anon 8 poetry Magazine.
LizardÊ¼s First Law of Inertia
Lizard saw that rocks wanted to be at rest on the Earth
and that smoke wanted to be at rest in the sky
and the stars wanted to remain where they had been flung.
He thought that a body was in its natural state when it was still,
and for his body to move in a straight line at a constant speed
no force but his own was needed to maintain the velocity.
Though wind helped occasionally with acceleration.
And the sun.
[From the world according to Lizard]
