This acrylic oil and ink piece is very dramatic, feminine and rich with cultural significance. Although Islam is part of my heritage, I do not display this aspect of my identity by adorning a headscarf. For many people, a multitude of connotations such as devotion, protection, concealment and conformity come to mind. Would the religious aspect of my identity be stronger both to others and to me if I were to adopt this veil?
