  1. Indeed no need for words!

    I always wanted to have this picture for my appartment in Iran as I used to live there.

    I'm still interested to have a copy.
    Do you have any idea where I could get a poster of that?

    Thanks!

  2. I don't think you can find a poster of this in the US. After all it is against the religion of American Way of Life™, and is considered blasphemous.

    Here you can find some of her other works. Those that can be used for glorification of what is criticized here in this picture.
