Fatima al-Fihri Portrait

Fiercely Female 2019

Decue Wu is invited to illustrate Fatima al-Fihri for the 2019 Fiercely Female Calendar.

The calendar is published by Sourcebooks and is for sale via Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other retailers from this July. Decue's part in the project was to create a portrait of Fatima al-Fihri, who is credited for founding the oldest educational institution in the world - The University of Al Quaraouiyine in Morocco in 859 CE.  Decue's art can be seen in the month of September and stands strong amongst other women such as Georgia O'Keefe, Ellen DeGeneres and Etta James.
