The Wind-Up Dolls of Kabul is a painting series about six Afghan women whom I met on a visit back to my homeland Kabul, Afghanistan in the year 2010 after a 14-year absence. The project is conceptual narratives on the subject of Afghan feminism. Each canvas portrays the innermost thoughts, social dimensions, and psychological insights of an Afghan woman in contemporary Afghan society.
