Description

This fascinating stencil image represents justice as a belly-dancer wearing a military beret, holding a scales. There are multiple layers to this image. The reference to the figure of a belly dancer, usually viewed as immoral or improper in the Egyptian context, intends to raise questions about justice and the military, specifically with regard to military trials of civilians, which proliferated under SCAF.
