As the government is engaged in doing all kinds of preparations for giving a historic welcome to the Saudi Crown Prince—Mohammad bin Salman today in the federal capital, the people of Pakistan are also doing their best to welcome the royal guest.
Rabia Zakir—a Pakistani artist in a gesture of welcoming the Crown Prince has made a painting of Mohammad bin Salman.
The artist has done justice to the painting via oil on canvas, she has painted many features of the prince which includes his conventional Arab outfit and the handkerchief.
While talking with ARY News, Ms. Zakir has said that it was tough to transfer the facial features of the Crown Prince on the canvas.
It took almost a week to complete the painting.
She said that she personally wanted to gift the portrait to the Saudi Crown Prince, and if she did not get the chance to meet with him, she would then hand the portrait over to the Saudi Embassy in Islamabad.
Previously, Sonia Nisa—another Pakistani artist, who created a calligraphic painting of the Prime Minister—Imran Khan broke the internet last month. In recognition of her efforts she got the chance of meeting with the Prime Minister himself and there she in person gifted the portrait to the PM.
Nisa drew the facial features of the PM-Khan by writing the lyrics of the national anthem of Pakistan in such a pattern that upon completion, the calligraphy matched with the PM.
