Muslima - Art You Should See

artist Mehwish Iqbal
I'm recovering just now from a round of tears provoked by the most visceral, haunting art I've seen in ages.  It really hit home, and not just because of the pattern pieces.
The International Museum of Women's Muslima: Muslim Women's Art & Voices site is beyond words.  Try this - click through these images and FEEL them, but don't read the text.  Then go back and read the text too and see if your impressions were correct.  So beautiful, frightening and hopeful all bundled together gorgeously.
Here in the West ain't got nothin' to complain about.  Srsly.
