Tessellations where words are written in Square Kufic and their shape manipulated in such a way to make the space or background area between the letters also read as text. One historical example is where the name Ali is repeated three times in black in the foreground and three times in white in the background. Other examples include the name Ali repeated two times each in the foreground and background, and the names Muhammad and Ali repeated four times, one name in the foreground and the other in the background.
