The perfect companion in the home, this tea towel with printed artwork titled Masum and her son Aman: Subcontinent offers a story about resilience and hope.
Asylum Seekers Centre Patron and local Sydney artist, Wendy Sharpe painted portraits of many members of our community. Masum agreed to sit for the painting, using the time to speak more about her story and love for her children. Wendy was able to reflect Masum's story with each brushstroke. The result is this beautiful image which has been printed onto a tea towel so you may have it in your home.
