      Thanks a lot Hessam jaan, you're always nice and supporting :)
      So far I painted 5 pieces. The day after I finished the other 3, a friend of us bought them and I didn't have a chance to take good photos of them. I will take photos of them and will post them here.

About Artwork

About my museum project:

Whenever I go to a museum in any part of the world, I look for old objects from ancient Iran, and each time I find magnificent artworks, mostly metal plates and ceramic bowls with patterns an designs that are sometimes surprisingly modern-looking. At the time these artworks were created, the artists wouldn’t go to the nature for inspiration and didn’t try to copy the nature; instead they looked at their masters’ artworks and tried to recreate the pieces they found inspiring (or a patron asked for) with their own personal touch and changes. I decided to put my feet in their footsteps for a while and recreate the treasures I have found in different museums.
