I have an update on 'The Boat'... An artist friend from Wet checked with a Tunisian friend and he says the translation is:

God Keep the devil away from me. In the name of God, the merciful, the mercy which opens the doors. You are the best one to open them.

For those of you in the Baren Exchange 43, you may update it if you wish.


Tengo nuevas noticias sobre 'La lancha'... Una artista muy amiga mia de Wet pregunto al un amistad de Tunisia y dice que la traduccion es:

Dios guarde el diablo lejos de mi. En nombre de Dios, el misericordioso, la misericordia que abre las puertas. Usted es el mejor para abririlas.

Para los de vos quienes participaron en el intercambio 43 de Baren, se lo pueden anadir.

Thanks... I was pleased with the translation. I have an 'ala-wa-shalan' ('wecome' in Arabic) image by my doorway and this will be a nice addition.

Very beautiful, I love the image. Now I wish I was in that exchange.

Thanks, Diane! I love the boat and it's great to know now what the image is "saying."

Thanks for the updated translation, Diane. And Thanks for the print. It's one of my favorites from the Baren exchange.
