I created this light ray Kaaba oil resist painting to celebrate Eid Al Adha. called Festival of the Sacrifice, an important holiday in the Islam religion.
This annual event occurs when Muslims around the world honor the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God’s command.
If they are able during this special time, Muslims travel to see the Kaaba, in Saudi Arabia, and shown here as if it has light bursting out of it.
Monday is Eid Al Adha, a holiday celebrated by Muslims around the world.
