abstract figure paintings – simple beautiful shape – the Hijab

such a simple beautiful shape with so many connotations - the Hijab


The western world would call it a scarf and wear it without association of much that is important. If you are a Muslim woman you would call it a khimaar but non Muslims know it as the Hijab. Literally translated to English it means barrier and has become a symbol of disrespect for women in some circles. I have painted the Hijab here to show respect, such a simple beautiful shape covering the hair of modest women deserves no less.
