The signification of Paradise
 

PARADISE (PARDIS) is a celestial garden.  The words of paradeisos in Greek, paradise in European languages, and firdaws in Arabic, originally came from Persia the "Avestan pairi-daeza" , meaning garden, itself was the terrestrial image of the celestial garden of paradise. The term of paradise also means a piece of land made more agreeable than its surroundings by cultivation or an enclosure, and especially a royal park.

In the Islamic religious text paradise (firduws), is described as an eternal spring and garden with which the trees have continuous blossoms and everything is joyful. There is no corruption in this world. The minerals are valuable and crystallized. In paradise the faithful recline at ease, drinking and enjoying the embraces of their celestial spouses. In this garden, there is no time and its inhabitants are all young. . According to Sufis, paradise is the manifestation of absolute beauty and the inhabitants of "Paradise" enter into every beautiful form that they conceive and desire . Moslem mystics simply interpreted paradise as being the good deeds of man.

Paradise Art Center-   Museum, Gallery  and educational Center in Hormoz Island    Persian

Ahmad Nadalian
 

The building is also a museum of works by Dr. Ahmad Nadalian and permanent gallery of his works. Two rooms of Dr Nadalian Museum in Hormoz dedicated to Artist-in-residence programs.  We host selected contemporary environmental artists. The Paradise Center in Hormoz Island aims to use local resources with the purpose of promoting art as a medium for creating better environmental and social interactions. This includes 'Kanis's house' featuring the illustrations of this local artist's life and interpretations of life on Hormoz.  Every year tourists from around the world visit these artworks.

This art center is  is linked to Paradise International Residential Center for Environmental Art.  

The artists who have residencies during the autumn and winter can stay in or in local house near our museum to realize their environmental art in the nature and landscape of Iran. They can also experience living with Iranian families, take part in the local cultural and society, and enjoy traditional food.

Nature of Hormoz Island

Hormoz Island has many attractions. It has many colorful mountains- colored earth, multicolored stones and and some salt cave.    Beauty of nature, kindness of indigenous people who live in the Island can be a  reason for tourists to make this their vacation spot during the winter. The climate in this Island is extremely favorable in the months during late autumn and winter.
