Powerful New Print Shows Hijab Decorated with Flowers

I like this new print that Icy & Sot created to aid the programs in Haiti and Braddock, Pennsylvania. The Iranian brothers wanted to challenge conventions with this personal and political statement. A woman is covered with a hijab, but instead of hiding her, it’s calling attention to her, with the help of spring flowers. Called Unforced Hijab, this is a limited edition print (to 250) that’s 13 x 19 inches. It makes you think.

Icy & Sot: “Unforced Hijab depicts that the Hijab can be a beautiful thing for someone if it’s not forced.”
