The Veil: What Remains Hidden

My childhood memories include religious icons and an aunt who became a nun. Each religion has its charitable, moral, and respectable points, but religion can also be rigid, absolute, and unforgiving. The figurative definition of ‘veil’ is: “to cover, screen or hide”. This art book reveals hypocrisies and paradoxes in the Veils (or Vows) of Silence, Shame, Chastity, and Blind Obedience. Why women ‘veil’ themselves was a theme I researched after 9/11 for both personal and educational reasons.
