I really admire Noha Al-Sharif's work although I'm yet to see any in person. Noha is a young Saudi sculptress whose work has already been exhibited in international exhibitions see here and here. After completing her studies at Jeddah fine arts College she opened her studio in Jeddah. 
Her Humbly and Devout series stems from her interest in the representation of groups in sculpture and her admiration of Henry Moore's work as well as the spiritual act of prayer in groups.
I find her work fascinating and look forward to having a chance to view it.
What do you think?
