Artist Nesreen Abd El Halim about "Playing Card":

"It is known that the girl's paper in the kuchina (card game) has two completely similar faces. It symbolises the Queen, meaning mother and humanity, and is abbreviated by the letter Q. However, I changed the woman’s face in the painting to the face of the contemporary woman in two different ways as a guide to different cultures. But in the end, she is a woman, and no matter how different the two sides are they are known in the kuchina as being one."
