“The Wall” Entitled “The Return of the Soul”
About her piece, porcelain artist Najat El-Taji El-Khairy states:
“The depiction of the Palestinian soul, returning to engrave its identity on the wall, attests that the wall itself was built on Palestinian land.
No matter how high, no matter how imposing, this wall will be unable, indeed incapable, to prevent Palestine’s growth.
Her flowers rise onto the wall, empowering it with cross-stitched Palestinian designs that graced her beautiful, traditional village dresses for centuries.”
The technique: A three dimensional porcelain sculpture painted with a pen and fired in a kiln to preserve the Palestinian motifs.
