'The Island' Original Painting

The Island 
Ink, Pigment Powders & Resin on Wooden Board; 23.6" (d)
Raniya Ahmed Mansoor & Ali Ajeel Rasheed, 2018

This work is nostalgic of how the Maldivians experienced life, as an organic whole - life, death, love, mystery - inseparable from fishing, seafaring, nurturing families and community. The painting showcases the island, which had everything the Dhivehi people needed, in itself.
