    Rebellious Silence, 1994 by Shirin Neshat. (from "women of Allah" series.) This piece shows woman with poetry drawn on her face, holding a gun in defiance. The artist quotes "In Islam a woman's body has been historically a type of battle ground". "The poetry becomes the symbolic voice of the woman whose individualism has been obliterated by the chador. "
