Shingal Woman #2 (Her Smile Mocks Death)
by Ferhad Khalil


The smile of this Shingal/Sinjar woman mocks death's haunting overcast. Many Yezidi women endured severe trauma at the hands of Daesh. This painting depicts a woman smiling in the face of death. The long neck symbolizes the fact that many were lynched. Her bravado at not allowing ISIS to be the thieves of her soul, transforms her from victim to conqueror.
