  • Provenance:
    Acquired directly from the artist in the 1980s.

    The 1970s and 1980s were amongst the strongest periods of Sohail's work. Here 'the beast' in the shape of a mythical animal symbolises the frightful power of man and the involuntary collusion of women with them, which was a favoured theme of his.
