Shirin Neshat created the Women of Allah series after her first visit to Iran after being exiled in 1979 due to the Iranian Revolution. In works that probe women's roles in politics, power, religion and self-representation, Neshat's imagery contrasts our compulsions toward both violence and piety. The inscription on the woman's veil is a popular prayer in Islam, meaning "Give a hand so that I can hold a hand."
