This serieses of illustrations is based on some of the sotries from a famouse Iranian book of poems, titled Shahname, written by the Persian poet Ferdowsi around 1000 AD. The book contains heroic and dramatic stories.

Each story selected for this series has been illustrated jointly by myself and a friend of mine, Negar Farmanara, using acrylic paint on a piece of wood 50cm x 70cm. The illustrations are multi-directional enabling observation from different angels. In addition, each work contains the text of the story in Persian as a visual element. The illustrations provide visaul ideas of the plots of the stories before they are read.
