Advisor of Cultural Affairs at Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) HE Sheikh Hassan bin Mohammed bin Ali Al-Thani created the artwork.

The artwork consists of three sculptural pieces of three women, wearing the traditional abaya and battoulah - reflecting traditional women's clothing in the Qatari culture.

His Excellency stated that the artwork 'Azm' symbolizes the homeland, explaining that the sculpture was created from granite located in Aswan in southern Egypt, which the pharaohs had anciently used to make their pieces and sculptures.

He stressed his keenness to accentuate the design of the sculpture to portray the strength and determination of the country, amid all the challenges that it had faced during its journey towards renaissance.

His Excellency concluded his statements by noting that this artwork was chosen by QF, as the work symbolizes the foundation's logo (three branches of the Sidra tree), indicating that the creating this piece of art took him about two and a half years.

It is noteworthy that Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development was established in 1995 as a non-profit organization.
