The Chimes and Impressions of Paradise

Posted on: Thursday, December 16, 2010

These hand-forged iron chimes created by Dr. Ahmad Nadalian and local artisans in Iran epitomize the spirit of a magical paradise and the cultivation of harmony with nature. My dear friend never ceases to amaze me with his ongoing outreach efforts in rural Polour and far beyond. His work with a whole generation of environmental artists in his homeland is shaping the future eco-art initiatives and cultural preservation.
If ever there was an image that spoke to the magic of the holiday season and all things promising, it would have to be Dr. Nadalian's cylinder seal sand prints as depicted above and below. The cylinders are made with rudimentary materials like recycled cans and bottles, although the resulting images are of timeless value despite their impermanence on local sandy shores.

To learn more about this amazing environmental beauty, visit Dr. Ahmad Nadalian's website.

I love the sand print cylinder. It's so simple but so beautiful and impressive.
