This collection inspired by the work of Mirza Ali of the Safavid Golden Age, (16th Century). An image that marks the beginning of my career as an artist at the age of nine. I learned painting by drawing this and other images in the similar style. The idea of executing this series 40 ,,, came to me when I revisited my old neighbourhood after ... years, and saw that our house and the room I was born in and held all my childhood memories, were all bulldozed and reduced to dirt, clay, and old broken bricks. Only a piece of the wall was still standing there, to revive my childhood memories of beautiful gypsum flowers. This house was in one of the city’s oldest neigh- bourhoods, precisely behind one of the magnificent architectural masterpieces of the Safavid dynasty. From that serene, charming neighbourhood with winding alleys that brought everyone closer together, only the trunk of a dead tree was left, and nothing more. Dedicated to all daring women who continually scratch the walls.
