Description : This collection is called “Ancient Persia”. In this collection I have used ancient elements dating back to 8000 years ago. Some examples of these ancient elements includes Luristan bronzes which are small cast objects decorated with bronze sculptures from the Early Iron Age and have been found in large numbers in Lorestān Province and Kermanshah in western Iran.
Furthermore, my art works have been inspired by objects which are attributed to Amlash culture (the culture that refers to an assortment of historic materials and periods in Gilan and west of Mazandaran, in north of Iran).
In the background of the pieces , I have employed meaningful elements such as, numbers 4,8 and 7 which were considered as holy numbers back in the days. The other elements which were used were the signs and elements which carry positive energy within them like, chakra, Om symbol (which is the sound of the universe), horseshoe, lion (symbol of power), lucky four leaf clover and many other meaningful elements that are used in the famous Iranian carpets which resembles wealth, luck, universe and love.
The purpose behind this collection is to introduce the ancient Persian culture to the audience and highlight the elements which were very well combined with positive energy.
