The pencil drawing for this piece was drafted in 2002, but not painted and completed until 2005. The picture of the zebra came from a magazine advertisement for Absolut Vodka that Ebrahimi’s sister had on her wall. When he saw the picture, he immediately wanted to paint it.
Ebrahimi spent so many hours on the intricate drawing of the piece that when it came time to paint, he had lost the ambition to do so. He finally returned to the piece in 2005 and completed it within four days. At 72 x 72, it is the largest of Ebrahimi’s paintings.
If you look closely in the middle of the zebra's forehead, you can see an Absolut Vodka bottle.
