The artist uses the canvas almost like a digital interface, that has modern digital icons along the bottom edge of the picture and old typeface denoting the historic nature of Mosul. An young female figure looks out of the top half of the canvas with a provocative gaze that radiates at once both defiance and dignity. Letters and symbols have been jumbled up and disordered, but the essence of them remains waiting to be unscrambled and pieced back together again. Mosul’s spirit remains following the liberation of the city from Daesh occupation.
