Sonbili font has strange curves and motions taken from the Arabic and Persian scripts. In this painting, the alphabet letters of Sonbili are illustrated at the top and bottom of the work. In the central part, two letters of ع and ج are depicted as the symbol of cohabitation. A couple lived a long life full of love and affection together for about 80 to 90 years. The brown colors and textures found in this work represent aging and the green color in the center of the painting is a symbol of a healthy heart.
