I saw her face on the cover of National Geographic magazine, in a photo taken by Steve McCurry. When I saw her eyes, I knew I had to paint her.
Her eyes tell the story and her young face (12 years) shows the difficulty of her life thus far. I kept her face beautiful, despite the hardship under which she lived. In the background I placed her journey in the dry and rocky mountains of her native Afghanistan.
