Mannequin in the Grand Bazaar


Mannequin in the Grand Bazaar, (Istanbul, Turkey) originally uploaded by Shaalom2Salaam (Safiyyah).
There are those
among us
who are
nicked
kicked
displayed
then played
used
abused
affected
neglected ...
They look good
on the outside
but inside
cease to live anymore ...

Asalamu Alaykom,

Good metaphor!

I wish it wasn't true but it is.

I'd love to see this same mannequin get a hijab make-over :)
