The Palestinian woman is not painted in the heroic or romantic mode. She is a common woman with a stern face, determined to resist. She holds a weapon without displaying it or threatening. She stands upright in a dismembered and chaotic territory. Issiakhem paints the Palestinian woman and Palestine. This work also expresses the painter's personal drama and the tragedy of Algeria.
