A Sultan's signature, called a tugrah, from the Ottoman Empire. At the start of a Sultan's reign, the court calligrapher designed his tugrah. It served as seal and stamp, much like the cartouche in ancient Egypt. This one includes the Kelime-i Tevhid, which states: "There is no divinity but God [Allah]."
