Serigraph on Coventry Rag, 100% Cotton Custom Archival Paper with hand-deckled edges. Came with a certificate of authenticity.

A portion of proceeds went to Human Rights Watch.

"Shepard Fairey created this image of an Arab woman three years after the start of the second Gulf War. The work is a response to the extreme anti-Islamic rhetoric of the time. With this piece, Fairey confronts the notion of collective blame directed against all Arabs. Fairey portrays her as a characteristically strong woman, who looks directly at the viewer, confidently but no menacingly. Her countenance is appealing and relatable, evoking a humanizing effect on a group of people that are often misrepresented as threatening. The artist intends to stimulate humanity and compassion, challenging preconceived notions about Muslims, otherwise perceived as the enemy. The floral design of Turkish origin is intended to subconsciously evoke a unified appreciation of beauty and function as a bridge between the West and the Middle East, a familiar form that brings us all together." -co-curator Pedro Alonzo
