I love objects that bring warms and can remind you of a particular person or moment in your life. This art object, in the form of a small drawing, represents two Arabic letters that are equivalents of English letters L and N and that are connected to form one single piece. It was made by my close friend, who gave me this object for my birthday that happened not long ago after I got married. She visualized the first letters of my name and my husband’s name, signed it at the bottom and put it in the frame to keep it safe.
Almost a year passed from that day, but every time I look at this drawing, it brings me the memory about my wedding day as well as the understanding that presents made with heart are more important than the most expensive objects in the world. Memories will stay forever, but material objects will not.
