Riza Abbasi, Riza yi-Abbasi or Reza-e Abbasi, رضا عباسی in Persian, usually "Riza" or Reza Abbasi also Aqa Riza (but see below) or Āqā Riżā Kāshānī (c. 1565–1635) was the leading Persian miniaturist of the Isfahan School during the later Safavid period, spending most of his career working for Shah Abbas I. He is considered to be the last great master of the Persian miniature, best known for his single miniatures for muraqqa or albums, especially single figures of beautiful youths. Reza was possibly born in Kashan, where his father, the miniature artist Ali Asghar, is recorded as having worked in the atelier of the governor, Prince Ibrahim Mirza. Unlike most earlier Persian artists, he typically signed his work, often giving dates and other details as well, though there are many pieces with signatures that scholars now reject. He may have worked on the ambitious, but incomplete Shahnameh, now in the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin. A much later copy of the work, from 1628, at the end of Abbas' reign and rendered in a very different style, may also be his. It is now in the British Library (MS Additional 27258). His first dated drawing is from 1601, in the Topkapi Palace. A book miniature of 1601-2 in the National Library of Russia has been attributed to him; the only other miniature in the book is probably by his father. He is generally attributed with the 19 miniatures in a Khusraw and Shirin of 1631-32, although their quality has been criticised. Sheila Canby's 1996 monograph accepts 128 miniatures and drawings as by Riza, or probably so, and lists as "Rejected" or "Uncertain Attributions" a further 109 that have been ascribed to him at some point. Today, his works can be found in Tehran in the Reza Abbasi Museum and in the library at the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. They can also be found in several western museums, such as the Smithsonian, where the Freer Gallery of Art has an album of works by him and pupils,the British Museum, Louvre and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reza_Abbasi" rel="nofollow">en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reza_Abbasi</a>
I met this young man in a pharmacy. He was wearing a cross on his neck. I asked him if he went to any churches in Tehran. He told me he was Muslim ! I asked him why he would wear the cross. He told me it was fashion.
Turkman Yurt is full-developed form, the trellis-tent or so-called yurt . The top of a cylindrical trellis wall-frame about 5.60 m in diameter and 1.55 m high for a 62 head tent, supports radial, curved roof-struts, 2.75 cm long, inserted around the rim of an apical roof wheel of 2.00 m diameter, to support it 3.30 m above the ground. It is used by the Turkman as öy or āq öy.
I attended this exhibition at mosalla. I saw so many happy colors and beautiful dresses for ladies. Unfortunately I was not able to see any of these colorful and happy color cloth on the street. I asked around and I found that the main reason was the Iran's Moral Police who arrest women with inappropriately dressed. <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSSLp1NEm8g" rel="nofollow">Tehran hosts 2nd Fajr International fashion & clothing festival </a>
To go to the Haj, you have to meet certain conditions. One of them, is to write your name on the Iranian Haj quota list that is allocated by Saudis. (sometimes a person has to wait longer for his / her turn) This advert is from a company who has Haj Ministerial Rights to buy, sell, or exchange people's names on the Haj quota list. There is an offer saying that if you introduce another person to them, who is already on the Haj quota list, then they reward you with 100,000 Tommans ! <a href="http://www.hajnews.ir/" rel="nofollow">www.hajnews.ir</a>
