Bag’s Take-Away:

A Face of the Day of sorts.  I’ve seen pictures of imams, some satirical drawings of Mohammed, but I’ve never seen this sort of idolatry (it’s Mohammed’s son-in-law). Judging from the wear on the banner, this has been used many times.  Lighten him up and de-arch the eyebrows and you have a figure on the order of the Catholic jesus. It’s almost as if all the energy that would have gone into depicting Allah (if they could), seems to have gone into his son-in-law.
