Description

A nude woman is depicted from the front, though her face is turned to gaze over her right shoulder toward the left side of the page. Text in Arabic is interwoven with the words: “Not yours to touch no matter how naked I am.” White, curling vines fill the space on the right side of the page. The background of this print is light blue.
