Darawish icon set by Majnouna Darawish icon set by Majnouna
To download the Mac and PC icons please refer to my :pointr:Downloads Page:pointl:, where you'll find all my icon sets, my terms of use and the licenses I offer.

Yesterday night I attended a Sufi dhikr and sema3 at the Tripoli Festival, a beautiful ceremony of singing, music and the well-known whirling dance.

I'd seen one when I was much younger, and what I didn't know and only noticed now, was that the whirling is not "plain", but animated by a number of what I can best describe as "mudhras". There were more than I could make out, but I was fascinated by this – each of these gestures meaning something very specific.

It was my friend who made the (tongue-in-cheek?) suggestion I should make Mini Fu versions of the dancers... So here they are, in the 10 movements I was able to mentally note. Definitely the most random set I ever made and I'd be shocked if anyone actually used it :D

I love them. You really have a special talent to capture body stances and movement in very simple lines.
