In the eye of the beholder

Foxy Shahzadi, a 1974 beetle is ready to hit the road after receiving its Pakistani truck art makeover. Originally the property of  Dr. Vincent Ioos, a french doctor serving for three years at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences’ Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in Islamabad, this vehicle will make a 25 day journey from Islamabad to France.

The foxy shahzadi gives a chance for indigenous Pakistani artists (what else can you call them) to show off their work all over the world, providing a genuine glimpse into Pakistan's culture. In a time when major headlines of Pakistani are related to Obama's War in Afghanistan, its good to hear about something else for a change.
