Title not known (Ahmad 31)
Tri-part composition with Dome of the Rock and Ka’ba
In this triptych, by Mahoud Ahmad, the central panel is supplemented by two smaller panels that share its overall color scheme. The dream-like figures of a human headed horse and a cloaked rider adorned with a golden halo dominate the center scene set against a background of amorphous swirling patterns. The smaller panels to the left and right depict the famous sites of the Dome of the Rock and the Ka’ba from an aerial perspective.
Location: Currently unknown. Possibly from the collection of the Iraqi Museum of Modern Art (the former Saddam Center for the Arts)
Hard copies purchased from the photographer of the museum in 2004.
