Heshu's Commemoration in a series of Paintings

On October 10-11th, KWAHK commemorated Heshu in an international event staged in Paris. Today, KWAHK commemorates her through a series of paintings by the famous Kurdish artist, Rebwar Saeed. He was Heshu's art teacher for some time in Acton and knew her family. He made these paintings soon after Heshu's death on October 12th, 2002 and they were exhibited in West London. He has dedicated the paintings to KWAHK's website. Two of them were exhibited in Paris during a memorial ceremony for Heshu. Rebwar Saeed has been supporting and assisting KWAHK since its launch in March 2000.

On reflecting upon the death of Heshu, Rebwar Saeed said:
"Heshu was only ten years old when she attended my art class in Acton every Saturday. She was particularly calm, a calmness that was striking and left its trace within those who were lucky to be touched. In her beautiful eyes many hopes shone forth. Her drawing, along with choice and use of colour, reflected her dreams: dreams of flying, of joining the clouds and the moon to tell them her secrets.

Alas, before her dreams became true, they were killed. Today, when looking at her clouds, you can see that her dreams were the simple dreams of any normal human being on this earth. But for Heshu these dreams were seen as undeserved."
