Dead woman painting

20 year old Delara Dalabi confessed to a murder she says she didn't commit three years ago because her lover - who committed the crime - convinced her that since Iranian law prohibits the execution of minors, as a 17 year old she would face minimum penalty. As it turns out, the Iranian government (surprise, surprise) broke their own laws and decided to execute her anyway. Tehran's Golestan gallery is hosting an exhibition of her works, almost all of which have been produced during her incarceration, to help her fight for her life. Regardless of her fate, these haunting images will live on to tell a story that is unfortunately all too familiar to us now...

This story is so sad. It's a horror story version of "Stand by your Man."
