Via things magazine I find that the Government Art Collection is online. The picture above [now removed as I’m told it’s a violation of copyright – see Robert’s comment] was the first I came across and the collectors describe it in this way:
Inspired by “The Conference of Birds”, a twelfth-century verse by the Persian poet Farid Al-Din Attar, Abbassy’s work depicts the physical and spiritual elements of human existence. Inspired by this idea, the natural forms of the trees and birds symbolise self-knowledge, while the woman’s body represents the anatomical or physical aspect of life.
Now I know its there I will try to explore it a bit more.
