Abstract

This article questions the symbolic representations of women and their spiritual and physical belongings in contemporary arts. In the Islamic world, there are many pop cultures that produced different symbolisms of feminine images, and used it in different socio political contexts to express symbolic messages. Such symbolisms may express spiritual connotations referring to religious backgrounds, while others may not because artists in the Islamic world represent many social issues from their communities. Such issues are diverse that range from political, social, spiritual as well as high individual issues that are very subjective in nature. Artists in the Islamic world use the feminine image to express their multicultural environment, while they link the physical and spiritual elements to the global cultures.
