First prize winner in the 38th Bahrain Annual Fine Art Award, Bahrain National Museum, Bahrain 2012 and produced in 2010.
The Muse Series consisted of two 2m x 1.5m drawings. It is a reinterpretation of an Islamic tradition practiced in Bahrain called ذبيحة "Thebiha" which is an animal sacrifice symbolic of the laying down of a person's will and ego in return for a blessing from God. In some occasions this act is also referred to as a نذر "Nedther".
'Kill the muse' is the self portrait of sacrifice and 'Freedom from the muse' is the metaphorical cleansing/exorcism of the Artist.
