Hidden Wounds

This piece depicts the idea of sexually harassed and abused women. This is shown by the use of my material and the meaning of my quote, “She’s aesthetically alluring, don’t let them play with it and keep it enduring.” I created a traditional henna design in the illuminated manuscript because the Bengali and Indian culture is a part of my identity. I stitched my quote on a traditional Indian scarf called the chunni because this garment covers a womans head to show respect and modesty.
