These two paintings are a nod to the bond of womanhood not only for Algerian women – the subject of the artwork – but also worldwide. In one painting, a group of five women dressed in traditional clothing and jewelry is seen. In the next painting, the same crowd of five women is seen but they are painted in an abstract style. Hues of cool colors unify the elements – this color scheme is meant to unify the piece and also provide an introspective mood to the painting. Therefore, seen side by side, the artwork interprets the condition of womanhood seen through the prism of Algerian culture but still relevant for women everywhere: the struggles of equality for women everywhere is similar and the contemplative mood of the second painting demands a unified reaction to this reality.
