Description

Unframed Open-Edition Print
11" x 14"
Pen and ink drawing.
Signed on back by the artist unless specified otherwise. Watermark will not be present.

Persian/Iranian cartoonist Atena Farghadani is in prison for drawing a cartoon that criticized the government. The drawing shows Atena reaching through the bars of her cell and drawing on flattened paper cups - she did this in prison against the orders of the guards and was later punished. However, in my drawing the cups become doves, showing that peace prevails and you can’t hold back justice. Atena’s message of protest rings loud and clear. The Arabic in the scroll at the top (the calligraphy is my own) is from the Quran, Surat An-Nisa’ 4:135: “O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin.”
