Muslim Beauty - pen art by @mariandavp
The eyes are the mirror of the soul...
a true cliché which however happens to be quite accurate. You can tell many things about a person just by looking at them in the eyes. Kindness, empathy, admiration, attraction, anger, jealousy and mostly sadness are feelings that express themselves through our eyes and then through the rest of our body.
So even though as a western girl I may find it hard to imagine how it would feel to live with my face covered up, when I visited a couple of Muslim countries I must admit I did see some magic and mystery behind those elaborate fabrics, right in those Arab and South East Asian female eyes that observe you as you pass them by.
I made this drawing in recollection of those memories, using pilot pens and my method of office art.
