Dialogue of two Iranian and American
artists for Peace
"The Bird of Peace”
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.
