Title: Goldane Becomes a Unique Pearl
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Dimension: 16" X 12”
On 12/03/1982 In the village of Roshankooh as a result of the ignorance and religious prejudice of the villagers of Sadat Mahale, Goldane – a pure soul who was waiting for her seven year-old grandchild to come home for lunch – was attacked by several men who, not satisfied with her death by suffocation, set her lifeless body ablaze. These flames were fanned by the winds of jealousy and envy. Her humble wooden cottage as well as the pen for her animals, were also set ablaze.
