The Tahrir Old man

This old man has become another icon of the famous Tahrir square icons. He joined the revolution since February 2011 and since then he has not left it.
All what is known about this man is that his name is Radwan , an Upper Egyptian war veteran who joined the Egyptian army months before the six days defeat and left it in 1974 after the 1973 victory. After that he returned back to Upper Egypt then went back to South Sinai and to live there for the rest of his till he moved to Tahrir square to fulfill the demands of the Egyptian 25 January revolution .                              
I know that in time of Shafik as a president , that old man will be arrested and sent to some mental asylum for believing in mythical thing as #Jan25
Here is a beautiful portrait for Sheikh Radwan by Walid Yassin.
