Painting on Marble - Gol o Morgh
'Gol o Morgh' in Farsi which means 'Flower & Bird' are important motifs in Iranian (Persian) Art. The flower (Gol) is a metaphor for perfection and beauty, and might figure the beloved (either worldly or spiritual), the sweet-singing bird (Morgh) might represent the lover, or the poet in Persian literature.
The universal appeal of 'Gol o Morgh' pattern and the range of both earthly and divine meanings made it the principal theme of the decorative styles of the Safavid (1501-1722) and Qajar (1785-1925) eras. However, this theme was a traditional one in both painting and poetry well before the Safavid period tracing the beginnings of Persian manuscript illustration in the 14th century.
On this piece 'Gol o Morgh' theme painted on Iranian world famous rich marble stone. It is attached on a dark cherry colour velvet and framed in style.
