With the help of symbols and signs, the artists have reflected their love towards the third Imam of the Shia through their paintings, sculptures and photos.

“Elegy of Water”, a painting by Hossein Khosrojerdi, depicts Hazrat Abbas (AS), brother of Imam Hussein (AS) whose hands are filled with water but he refuses to drink. 

A painting by Abdolhamid Qadirian depicts Zoljanah, the wounded horse of Imam Hussein (AS) walking through the burning tents.

The exhibition also showcases a huge painting by Nasser Palangi named “Shroud of Blood”. It illustrates a white shroud over a beheaded body, referring to Imam Hussein (AS) who was brutally beheaded at the battle of Karbala.

Other artworks belong to Zabihollah Mohammadi, Mojtaba Musavi, Kurosh Golnari and Alireza Adambskan to name a few.

The exhibit will be running until September 25, at the Forum located on Musavi St., Taleqani Ave.
