Limited edition Fine art Giclee Print - Life in the Outer Hebrides by Zahida Ali. 

Zahida Ali, 31, is a housewife and lives with her children in Dolomuch.  Her husband, a Doctor, works away from Chitral. Zahida dreams of sending her children abroad to study and is working to give them a brighter future.

‘I thought the Outer Hebrides was a big city at first when I compared it to our small villages in Chitral, but when Adil showed me books and photographs, I was fascinated by the lifestyle, the houses and the people.

In the tapestry I am showcasing a small village from the Outer Hebrides… Through the illustration, I decided to show daily life, natural surroundings like different village animals, telephone booth and a mail box.  

My favourite part of the illustration was the lamppost … It reminded me of the Minar – e Pakistan. I instantly connected with the rural lifestyle, village life, goats, chickens and the hardships of living in a remote village.  The olden Hebridean culture was very similar to the way Chitrali still lives… I’m amazed!
