In Ancient Times No One Could Tame

Somehow he has made it to modern times and into my Gallery!
(It's a MIRACLE!)

His Real Name Is Written In Arabic

Note: My Name and Copyright can also be found on the creation above in Arabic! (Ha!)

I will add the original image inside of the thread.

Exceptional effects on this creative image, Pom! Love the black frame and the black portions within the frame. Great use of Arabic language throughout.

He looks like a figure iin a bible story ~ but then, you've already explained who he is, haven't you? ;-D
I believe we're looking at a winner here.

Hi Mare! :D I had a real "time" figuring out who he was. Darn it. Maybe he is really King Solomon or someone? Rats!

Do you really like it? I know it might look a bit controversial to do a piece like this one...Using a whole different language etc...but BP is supposed to be world wide and for all people. Even "Layth", right?!! :D

(Besides what has ever stopped me from being "different"...?) HeeHee...

Thanks so much and see you soon at YOUR gallery!

Night night!

He still looks like an Arabian sheikh to me, SSSLala. But I have a feeling I've seen him before... Hmmm... Not sure.
Anyway - handsome fellow and a most FABULOUS image!!!

Hi everyone!!!!!

I sure feel sorry for the people and pets all around me here at home. They are my DDR victims! Hahahahahaha! I usually only experiment with my own "mug" to keep the peace. Dale liked this one however and it was fun to post.

I'm really enjoying your feedback. Thanks so much everybody and Yes...I knew some of you would recognize who this was. HeeHee...

I hope you all have wonderful days!
