Thank you! Here the basic colors, plus gold and silver, are used to explain aspects of Islamic life. The stylized illustrations, richly detailed, often play with the sizes of the objects in a surrealistic way. It is difficult to tell whether the family lives in the Middle East, Britain home of the artist or North America. The secular architecture looks Western, but the mosque looks very grand and Middle Eastern.
