'Shams and Mowlavi' at the International Mowlavi Congress

Thursday, November 1, 2007

Iran's master of miniatures, Mahmoud Farshchian, has unveiled his latest work 'Shams and Mowlavi' at the international Mowlavi Congress.

Farshchian, who created the painting in two months, says he has tried to introduce the Iranian identity of Mowlavi to the world.

Referring to the hostile cultural propaganda used to introduce renowned Iranian figures as non-Iranian, Farshchian stressed the necessity of accurately representing Iranian culture.

He cited the book 'Arabic Geometric Pattern and Design', which has portrayed Iranian patterns as Arab creations and has depicted Mowlana, wearing a Turkish hat. The book was translated into 27 languages.

Farshchian's 'Shams and Mowlavi', which was first unveiled on August 2nd at a miniature exhibition in the city of Isfahan will be on display until November 9th, 2007 at Iran's Palestine Contemporary Arts Museum.

Mahmoud Farshchian is Iran's most famous painter and miniaturist and has been honored in many exhibitions and museums around the world.
