I have a bunch of stencils that I cut from writing samples in Czech, German, Russian and Hungarian, some of which I used here. No one that I have found produces stencils in eastern european languages, yet they use fascinating letterforms that make wonderful patterns. The vertical stripes remind me of a curtain and the rusty color gives age to the composition. Behind the curtain you can see the exuberance of rounded black lines trying to escape.
