Sorry, I cannot hear you over the sound if your veil puns

I think I have what it takes to write an authoritative paper on (un)veiling. Content: page after page of انت مالك؟
“Fashion of the Veil” - HK Zamani
I am not sure what was the intention of the artist when creating this piece, but regardless of the multitude of feelings it may invoke in one, ranging from very negative to very positive, while looking at it only one feeling is invoked deep within me: I find it beautiful. Beautiful, in an unconventional way may be because I am not used to see something beautiful like this in this very format; for this very format often comes to realisation as nude bodies or completely abstract curves. Here, I see something beautiful, that is very corporeal and realistic yet also very abstract and surrealistic. And I like it. I think, it is beautiful.
I see a woman in a burqa asking you to shut up.
