Raza is a feminist painter, whose works have focussed on issues pertaining to women's rights. She is known for her 'Woman' and 'Chowkandi Tombs' series, and the present lot is an example of the latter. Four works from the Chowkandi Tomb series form part of the Bradford Museums and Galleries collection. Raza received the President's Pride of Performance Award in 2007 in recognition for her contribution to the arts.
