“There is a chalice made with wit profound,
With tokens of the Maker’s favor crowned;
Yet the world’s Potter takes his masterpiece,
And dashes it to pieces on the ground!”
This very quatrain may be regarded as a proverbial window from the Greater Iran, through which one can have a clear perspective on the ever-changing time, which is constantly renewing and transforming everything. There is an epic aspect to the soul of the Iranian culture, for after every rupture, it pulls itself out and reemerges from the other side. In the visual qualities of this collection of works, created from a pastoral, natural viewpoint, there is an indication of time and corporeality in a contemporary context.
