The event is devoted to paintings by children and young adults about the day of Ashura and its rituals.

The works on display are the creations of the institute’s members from all Iranian provinces.

Ashura, the 10th day of the first month of the Islamic calendar, Muharram, is the climax of the mourning processions for Imam Hussein (PBUH), a grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his true companions, who were martyred in the modern-day Iraqi city of Karbala by the forces of the second Umayyid caliph, Yazid.

The exhibition will run through August 22.
