Hangama Amiri: Secrets and Desires By Suzanne Russell The woman in the chadori stands in a gallery surrounded by oil paintings of nude women. The viewer is confronted with a cultural distance between the covered woman and the women who modeled for the paintings. The questions evoked are: Does the woman in the chadori see herself in the women in the paintings? Does she see them as beautiful? Does she desire or reject their kind of freedom?
