    I got this at a yard sale for only $5 because of the damage to the matting. But I couldn't see any damage to the print itself & thought the piece was interesting, so I bought it.

    I've tried figuring out the artist's name but can't - and am wondering if it's worth the expense of opening it & replacing the matting?

    Can anyone make out the artist's name?

    I appreciate any help!

    I don't think she's black in the sense of African. She looks more Pakistani, Himalayan, from that part of the world & the script also looks like it would be from that region. As always, @Any Jewelry can probably help here.

    It is charming, journey.
    The woman is wearing traditional Yemeni dress, which was also worn by Jewish people in Yemen. The little boy is clearly Jewish.

    Many Yemeni Jewish moved from their home in the southern Arab peninsula to Palestine, later Israel, where they are known as Yemenites.
    The migration started in the 19th century, when Yemeni Jewish silversmiths were attracted by the growing tourist trade in Palestine. It continued and there was a major 'airlift' operation from Yemen to Israel in 1949-50, called Operation Magic Carpet.
    Many Yemenites hold on to their centuries old traditions as much as they can in present day Israel.
