The purpose of his paintings is to highlight the soul of the Kurdish woman in her traditional costume. His intent is to depict the connection between Kurdish woman and clothing worn by women in society. This is achieved by shedding light on traditional Kurdish female costumes and the meaning behind the colors and symbols of outfits which have different shapes, styles, designs, and societal meaning. In addition to the symbolic meanings, the design of the dress projects an inner mood and expression often overlooked by Kurdish culture.
