Flower and Bird (Gol-o-Morgh)
18 detachable postal cards
In the past few decades this image of a little bird flying around red roses has been seen every where in Iran; Wallpaintings, advertisings, ideological posters and so on. Using the flower and bird motif as a sign of dedication and martyrdom turned people’s eyes from it and the audience has forgot that this beautiful image once was meant to represent eastern mysticism and love. In this collection we tried to gather some of the most astonishing portrayals of Iranian aesthetics and adoration.
