The VenoArt National Loving Day Auction

Artist: Laleh Ghaed Amini, has several international rankings and holds several group and individual exhibitions domestically and abroad. . . This collection is based on a research of love stories in Ancient Persian Mythology. “Leili and Majnoon” is an immortal love story sometimes compared to “Romeo and Juliet” though it predates Shakespeare in oral tradi- tion by more than 1,000 years. Today, it is still one of the most popular epics of the Middle East and Central Asia among Arabs, Turks, Persians, Afghans, Tajiks, Kurds, Indians, Pakistanis, and, of course Azerbaijanis. The most popular version of this love story “Leili and Majnoon” was penned by Nizami Ganjavi (1141-1209), who lived and died in Ganja, an ancient city in Azerbaijan where his shrine stands today. He wrote in Persian as was the literary custom of the day. Materials & Techniques: Acrylic on Canvas
