This project began as an exploration into the female body, looking at vulnerability, body awareness while challenging social conventions in an attempt to reclaim the female body back from the patriarchy.

Each piece here has been commissioned by a woman, and was sculpted according to her form, further pressing on the notion of vulnerability and possession.

The work was also picked up by a number of regional news platforms including CNN Arabia, BBC Arabic, and Mille World, among others, where themes of taboo and nudity were dissected.
