Prehistoric Fish Found in Central Park

Thursday, May 24, 2007

Abigail Doan

A week or so ago my Iranian artist friend, Dr. Ahmad Nadalian, visited New York City and several other US cities on an official invite for a sponsored exhibition that he was having in Washington, D.C. I met him on a bright, sunny morning in the northern woods of Central Park where he was carving several of his 'prehistoric' river art fishes. Dr. Nadalian has a long tradition of submerging his carved rocks in rivers and bodies of water where they might forever add to the spirit and environmental protection of the place. The artist also views the fish symbol as being emblematic of the human soul.



Amazingly, before tossing one of his carved rocks into a pool below a rushing waterfall, a local turtle made an appearance adjacent to the rock that was soon to be submerged. A sign perhaps that the native species of an urban park approve of this new addition to their habitat?

Nadalian: River Art

An interview by John K. GRANDE

Nadalian is an Iranian sculptor whose life's work involves engendering respect for living creatures and the natural environment. To achieve this, besides living with nature himself, he established sculpture grounds in a peaceful environment in natural surroundings. Water is a living element that contributes to his sculptures, and many of the symbols he engraves and sculpts are derived from ancient mythology and the rituals of pre-Islamic civilizations. more

 

Nadalian in Green Museum

By carving simple fish shapes and other forms onto small stones and river rocks, artist Ahmad Nadalian seeks to repopulate the spirit of neglected streams and rivers in his native Iran and around the world and share these treasures with future generations.  more

Journey across South Africa: Sand prints

 

During my trip in South Africa, I used my new cylinder seals and printed them on the sands of the beaches.  I usually got up early to catch sunrise on the beach. I use my cylinders seal and printed fish, starfish and a sign of recycle on the sand of the beach.

One of the new cylinders shows starfish. It was my desire to reflect the stars of heaven in earth and remind that in the ocean there are millions of beautiful creatures.

 

 

One of the new cylinders shows a modified symbol to recycle. Max created this sign, when I was in Iran; he sent me the image via e-mail.

 

 

 

I also painted the faces of people. The snake is now my favourite pattern.  It is a symbol of eternity and treasure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the 20th  September we decided to get to Cape Town. We drove past Muizenburg beach and saw that the water was a brown colour.  We presumed it was caused by some pollution.
