Presenting a modern Persian Miniature handmade art from the Shah-Nama, attributable to 16th century artist Mirza ‘Ali.
The Shah-nama provides a poetic account of the prehistory and history of Iran, beginning with the creation of the world and the introduction of the arts of civilization (fire, cooking, metallurgy, law) to the “Aryans” (People living in the ancient Indian subcontinent), and ending with the Arab conquest of Persia. The work is not precisely chronological, but there is a general movement through time. Some of the characters live for hundreds of years but most have normal life spans. There are many shāhs who come and go, as well as heroes and villains, who also come and go. The only lasting images are that of Greater Persia itself, and a succession of sunrises and sunsets, no two ever exactly alike, yet illustrative of the passage of time.
The painting depicts Gushtasp, a mighty huntsman and son of Shah Luhrasp, slaying the dragon of Mount Saqila to impress the emperor and win his daughter’s hand in marriage.
The modern artist has executed the painting in minute delicacy with a marked attention to the human subjects, flora, fauna, and outdoor setting.
This is Persian style art at its finest. The superb handmade artwork has been brilliantly achieved with use of meticulous brushwork and fine watercolors.
