Made from religious calligraphy the figures are facing security forces and demanding their votes. Again an early Dagod work which I did after the Green movement protests.
Islam like other Abrahamic religions lacks a serious role for women. It is often the case that the role has been wiped out.
Here I have made a joke that Ayatollah‘s most formidable critics in Iran are women who fight for their rights, and as a fabricated propaganda here they have turned religion into an appealing fashion house label to win them back!
This is a DaGod poem. Click on the image to see enlarge it.
I have taken my “Anthem for Neda” poem and applied several DaGod concepts to make it a DaGod poem.
Anthem for Neda
What lamenting cry for you who fell like a leaf?
More howling guns or sound of protesting feet?
What drops should pour for this anguish?
Their tears of Gas? More weeping in blood vanquished?
No mockeries for you; no drink from their martyr’s well,
Nor sound and vision from a TV deaf and blind for those who fell,
No gleam of sorrow from these murderous beasts,
Only a frenzy as they persist their blood feast.
How many candles should we burn to keep your memory alive?
Burn the World with your light or go back to just survive?
You gave your youth, life and beauty,
Shame on us to live but not to do our duty.
Life is just a day, our lives race towards the dusk,
We shall walk your path in freeway, we must until we turn to dust.
