Veiled Beauty
2009

1 1/2 Feet X 3 Feet
Gouache on Paper with white tape on top

The text reads:
Is There Beauty Left in Islam

This piece was made to question whether beauty in Islam still exists due to Islamic fundamentalism. The tape can represent marble window screens that exist in Mughal architecture and it also resembles a shuttlecock burqa that is worn by women in Afghanistan
