Finding Home #56 Zakhm

Finding Home #56 Zakhm

Siona Benjamin. Finding Home #56 Zakhm, 2004–2004.

Description:
Finding Home # 56 “Zakhm” is inspired by a page in the Koran and also by Jewish illuminated manuscripts. Are the swords weapons that will descend on her, or are they protection against unforeseen dangers? What seems like Urdu or Arabic writing above actually spells out “It’s unfortunate” in English.

Medium:
Painting
