This print is part of Younes' Shame series. The Arabic script on this print—aïb—translates to shame. The sculpture imaged in this print is Abduction of a Sabine Woman by Giambologna (1581-83).

By implying disgrace, voyeurism, indiscretion, and guilt, Younes explores how contemporary media plays a major part in promoting conflicting information surrounding Arabic culture and how this misinformation lacks self-reflection and insight into Western culture. This series is a way to denounce the duplicity lying beneath both freedom of expression in the West and the socio-cultural ethics of the East, and historic censorship in the West while that of the East is condemned.
