Pakistan - Art Miles Mural -design Fauzia Minallah
by Fauzia Minallah
Collage and Assemblage
The mural ' Multi religious harmony' is designed by a Pakistani artist and peace activist, Fauzia Minallah. All the shapes were cut out from different colored cotton cloth. These pieces were put together like a jigsaw puzzle with christian children in a shanty town of Islamabad. Fauzia Minallah gave this statement to MY HERO regarding the MURAL. "Through this simple art activity I as someone from majority religion of Pakistan I wanted the kids from marginalized minority to know that I respect all religions".
When art materials like paint and canvas were hard to come by, the group of Pakistani children and teachers who created this mural used what they had - cloth and thread.
This beautiful quilted mural speaks to the unity of all people of all creeds and how, under the guidance of enlightened adults, the world's children can learn lasting and harmonious tolerance.
