Made with graphite and ink, this artwork portrays the intersection of identity and strength. The piece depicts a Muslim, hijab wearing woman surrounded by a cluster of amaryllis flowers, with some protruding out of her eyes.
The amaryllis flower is portrayed to express a sense of personal identity and to celebrate cultural and religious history. It speaks of the pride in one’s accomplishments and heritage. The triumph of the human spirit over adversity and the beauty that can be found even in difficult circumstances.
