    This print was originally created for Witness, an organization dedicated to shedding light on human rights violations around the world. Founded by Israeli artist Izhar Patkin, Artists Support Witness was a limited edition project that paired together artists from diverse backgrounds to create joint photographs. In the present lot, the Iranian contemporary artist Shirin Neshat collaborated with Patkin on the concept for the work, which was then photographed by Rafael Fuchs. This image demonstrates the artistic possibilities under mutual tolerance and acceptance.
