Art Painting Dedicated to the Victims of the Iraq War: Mako Shaye - Part 2



Art Painting Dedicated to the Victims of the Iraq War: Mako Shaye.

In this episode, I present the second artwork piece of two produced in 2005 named "Shako-Mako" which in Iraqi translates "Nothing is the matter, thank you".

This is the second of two pieces of artworks, very gently looking at what is happening to and in Iraq. Simply by forwarding the most frequently used questions by Iraqis - what is going on everybody, why are we in this mess? Who is really benefiting from these situations, etc. when will this end? In this piece, the answer is put, which says - nothing is the matter, thank you, i.e. mind your own business - or is it? And who can answer for Iraq? The questions are still there. On the other hand, the art piece contains a comment wishing all Iraqis a better future.

Also featuring a great story, a beautiful poem and an important Islamic scientist who specialised in Herbal Medicine!

Qaffon Aasif: Ali Omar Ermes Artwork about the Libyan Hero Omar Al Mukhtar

This artwork shows an unfamiliar way of executing the letter Qaff, which in some ways resembles the old Kufic script. Unusually in the work of Ali Omar Ermes, it has stormy golden strokes around its sides. A comparable painting, similar in style, can be found at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.

The texts are poems by Ahmed Shawqi about the very well known resistance Libyan leader Omar Al-Mukhtar who died in 1932. Omar Mukhtar is an Arab Muslim rebel who fought against the Italian conquest of Libya, just prior to World War II.
