Egypt

 

Mira Shihadeh painted ‘Circle of Hell’. On the second anniversary of the Egyptian revolution, 25 January 2013, a woman was caught in a circle of some hundred men at Tahrir Square and brutally raped by a knife. Nobody – although the Square was packed with people – saw and heard what happened. The woman was trapped in a ‘Circle of Hell’. The mural was painted with the assistance of El Zeft, who added the writing on top of the wall.
