About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

Koranic school in Wardak, 1984. It is a Koranic school in this country where the word “secularism” has no meaning. Wardak (Afghanistan), 1984. Against the white-hot stone these little schoolchildren, some of whom are wearing the pakols, this extensible hairstyle with turned up edges which will be to Commander Massoud what the star beret was to Che. among these children how many will become Taliban, terrorize, humiliate, exterminate in the name of God? These paragraphs that they mumble will be instilled like a strong poison in the name of a belief, not of knowledge.
