Surrounded by Quranic text in contemporary Arabic calligraphy, this "Alanood" Arabic canvas combines traditional Arab culture with contemporary Islamic artistic design. By creating her hijab out of Quranic text, this design is illustrative of the fact that when you wear your hijab, you're wearing an aya (verse) of the Quran.
The "Ameera" Arab canvas exhibits that which is often misunderstood. An exotic beauty covered in a golden veil, with Arabic calligraphy down the side that reads "a beautiful secret." The ignorant see oppression because it is different than what they know or believe in. However, the wise understand:
"Your body is sacred. You're far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too." -Muhammad Ali, boxer & activist
