This is a rather large oil painting, some 30 x 50 feet in size. I wanted to address the culture clash occurring in the Middle-East, between Western contemporary values and the age-old conservative ways of Arab society. The mosque is missing some details and architectural features, namely spires, but I ended work on this painting at a deadline for an assignment. I plan on going back to finish it up when I can establish a studio to paint in, and will update the image to reflect the new details. The content however will remain the same and is open to criticism.
