Poems of the last century were engraved on the new grid of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him)..

The new grid of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) has several unique features, the most important is that its design is identical to the current grid, which is in itself an advantage compared to other grids of the holy shrines and sites. So, to preserve this feature, many modern techniques and mechanisms were used to adapt, compose, formulate and manufacture the large quantities of the used metal such as Gold, Silver and copper in an artistic way that gave it the beauty and magnificence according to the experienced and competent professionals. Noting that all these manufacture works have been made by Iraqi professionals and goldsmiths of the servants of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him).

Among the works on the new grid is the poem's engravings that are on the top of the grid's traceries [Duhna]. These engravings were conducted according to the measurements matching the old engravings, and the same old poetic verses of the late Sayed Mohammed Jamal Hashemi, which exist on the current grid were engraved on the new grid.

These verses were engraved on metal plates made of copper with a thickness of 7mm and a height of 18cm, using “Thuluth line” in an open way to make it easy to read by the calligrapher Dr. Rowdhan Bahyah, one of the finest Iraqi calligraphers currently.

These poems' plates pass through several operations, as after taking the necessary measurements, the specific lines are engraved and corrected manually on the "CNC", as this machine does not give the expected results. Then come the works of trimming the metal appendages, smoothing polishing and welding its fixing points on the wooden structure. And after verifying its compliance with the measurements, the works are concluded by painting the poems' plates with gold leaf and enamel within the factory of the shrines' grids at the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine using accurate and specific mixing ratios.

It is to note that the works on these poems' plates continue, and large proportions have been completed and installed on the wooden structure. And, all these works are taking place in parallel with manufacturing other pieces of the new holy grid of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him).
