Physical Description
No. 11 of a series of 27 prints. A simple, two-tone palette. Three human figures with animal heads sit at the bottom of the image. A human figure, with four arms, holds another animal-headed person above their head using two of their arms. The back of a right hand extends from the upper-left corner and covers a woman’s right eye while revealing her left eye by parting the middle and ring finger.
Sultana's Dream was printed and published by Durham Press in 2018.
