"The Bird of Peace”

On the first January 2008 we received British sculptor, Benjamin Hewett (Ben) who came to our Paradise. On the 2nd of April 2008, Ben went back home. Before he left I give him one of my carvings which had a design of a bird. I called this bird “the Bird of Peace”. Ben will take it home and make a nest in a hollow of a tree where he lives and this bird will start a new life.

Green People

During the past year I have experimented with projecting the textures of leaves onto the faces of people from different nations.   People can adopt new skin. They can exist in harmony with their surroundings and nature. They can all share something in common.  The concept behind this project is rooted in some old myths and beliefs.

According to an Old Persian mythology, the seed of the first man, who was murdered by the evil power, grew as a plant which turned into the first human couple.  The fruit of the tree symbolised the races of mankind and they finally assumed human form. In another myth, the kingdom of light and darkness or prince of good and evil are symbolised by two trees of life and death.  The Tree of life is decorated with all that is beautiful and is illuminated with all good things.  It is also mentioned in Genesis, (chapter, 2) that the Tree of life, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil exist in the garden of paradise (Eden) (Old Testament, Genesis II, verse 9, King James Bible). The names of some symbolic trees are mentioned in the Islamic sources.  The Tuba is a tree in paradise.  God planted it with his own hand and breathed his spirit into it.
