An abandoned shop’s door taken over by Bahraini artist Ahmed Anan. Asking the question “why” in the old souq in Manama, Bahrain. The artist depicts various characters tying to get the shop open, from one trying to scale the door to the air conditioning opening, to one trying to unlock the padlock. It has become a landmark in the souq and many people find it to take their pictures against it.
