The works are created by the students of Bahman Niku and the exhibit is named My Yalda from a New Window.

Yalda Night, which falls on December 21, is considered the longest night of the year when the ancient Iranians celebrated the birth of Mithra, the goddess of light. It is also known as the Chelleh Night.

“I am also participating in the exhibit with one work displaying a broken bowl with pomegranate seeds scattered all around,” Niku said.

“This resembles that our traditions are in danger of being forgotten and I meant to remind the visitors to try to regard their traditions,” he added.

The exhibit will be running until December 30 at the gallery located at 1 Panahi Alley, Bosnia and Herzegovina St. off Fereshteh St.
