This papercut art is a tribute to the luminary who brought a perspective that made a dream possible.

The Sheikh's love for culture and community, his admiration for falcons and his love for roses and cars are showcased in the work.
The pigeons depict his devotion for peace and unity .
His emphasis on human development and women empowerment is also presented in the work.
His synthesis of conventional and contemporary which was reflected in his self is reflected in the artwork.
