The veil was introduced more then 3000 years ago and initially worn as a symbol of social status and not religion, I.E. by respected women & wives of the household so that they could be distinguished from slaves and or prostitutes.
This ART project of mine, which I call the Niqab Project, questions the use of this Pre-Roman piece of cloth in our world today. I have photographed numerous women, the first in 2004, from many backgrounds and religions, wearing only a Niqab and asked how they felt wearing it.
There are only 10 images from the series of 35 women shown on this page. The rest will be released shortly.
Here are their quotes.
Just this piece of cloth, their voice and Mother Earths very own, female form.
These images are only for the web. The limited and different collection will be shown in a gallery within the next year and will be created on canvas/mixed media with synthetic polymer paint.
WORSHIP the feminine. Worship the Female Goddess.

The premise of this project questions the inability of the Human species to live and share our planet with our fellow animals. We are taking over the earth and driving to extinction a great number of species.
Crucifixion, in the Pre-Christian era was usually reserved for slaves, disgraced soldiers and murderers.
What is our excuse? And can we stop it?
Does extinction have a cost?
This series will debut at Aqua Art Miami during Art Basel week in Miami in December 2015.
