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.   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.

Environmental art is the art of the future.  We can learn how to behave with nature. I wish in the future we could have one environmental art event per day.

"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.

A Fabulous Mythological Bird: 20th Environmental Art Festival in Iran - Persian Gulf- Hormoz :  (February 2009)  

Report by Ahmad Nadalian

 

In the middle of January 2009 I traveled to Hormoz Island. In addition to my ‘bicycle of peace’, I realized several new environmental art projects.  In early February 2009 many environmental artists traveled to Hormoz Island to hold the 20th Environmental Art Festival in Iran, focused on the theme of "The Human and The Environment".  Most of my environmental art works created at Hormoz Island were paintings with organic colored earth.
