“Farasha” is an Arabic term meaning butterfly. The painting is so lifelike that it “hypnotizes” you. The girl’s gaze is like “Medusa,” the mythological woman with snakes for hair and petrifying facial expressions who froze people to death upon their discovery.

The Gorgons (greek mythology) were said to have the power of petrifaction, and it is said that just looking them in their eye could cause anyone who blinked or turned away instantly to turn into stone.

The butterfly is a symbol of freedom, and so Farasha enchants you with its whiteness. Its beauty can mesmerize even the most resilient person alive.

This painting is a meditation on the iconic image of an Afghan woman, taken by Steve Mc Curry in 1984.


The painting is equipped with museum glass with an optimal light transmission that virtually eliminates reflections, blocks up to 99% of UV rays, and brightens colors. Great durability and easy cleaning. Color stability Guaranteed up to 100 years.
