Title: ‘Allegiance’
Story: The idea behind this Abstract painting was to show our allegiance to Imam Ali (as).
Arches in this painting symbolize hands. The golden circle symbolizes Wilayat of Imam Ali and wilayat of all 11 Imams. The circle in between the two opposite arches is being drawn to show that the condition of acceptance for our deeds in hereafter is the Wilayat of Imam Ali (as) in our hearts.

Please note, that other participants will also be bidding on the same item so if you are really interested in the item, then you may want to go review the bid sheet a few times to ensure your bid is the highest. The highest bidder at closing time will win.
