The Eternal by Saher Nassar is the artist’s tribute to Palestinian caricaturist Naji al-Ali, celebrating his bravery and gallant freedom of expression. Naji represented an unwavering stance when drawing what he believed in with his continued criticism of his enemies and friends, leading to his assassination in London in 1987.

Naji is perhaps most renowned for his iconic character “Handala,” a depiction of a Palestinian child with his back turned, forever stuck at the same age when he was exiled from his homeland. Every Palestinian knows Handala, who became a symbol of resistance and outrage in the face of injustice. The artist has created a version of Naji’s character with a half-mortal side and the other half where he lives for eternity.
