Continue The Finding Treasure: Looking for The Beauty of An Ancient

If you think books with pictures only for children, I don’t think so. Because in this age I still in love with books with colorful pictures. After lost in the library last week, I’m still talking about old books and planning to discover more fun in it. I think I can’t distrack my attention on books right now. It was fun finding some unique pictures and symbol.

I found this picture in one of Arabian literature. Unfortunately, I didn’t know what this picture wants to tell about. I also found another picture besides this unidentified picture.

This ilustrations made by Hamzah Abd-Ullah Kar 🙂

I also found some books (I guess) related to ancient Rhome. I identified them from its long dresses made from white fabric.

If only I can understand the meaning of this symbol, may be I can make more writing about it. For now I can only imagine that this picture with FANTA writing seems like the old vesion of Fanta softdrink in this modern society. Hihi..

Do you know what this symbol means?
