Since I was young stories where my inspiration,I was picturing the stories in my head. The stories I can imagine I remember forever. I have started collecting stories, not necessarily because of the story or mythology scenario, but for a one picture or scene from the story. When I started looking in the Palestinian mythology I was amazed to discover the beauty, evil, lies and truth, and more importantly to discover that the women where always the center and the heart of all the stories in her various roles. In this project I am seeking to bring to life the stories that affected me, a narrative that crystallized a public and common identity.
