Persian Art


Ok, I must confess that I feel a bit guilty for posting here pretty much every single one of Pruned's links but... they are so good!

From the master site itself:

A few months ago, the Tehran Museum of Contemporary mounted a spectacular exhibition on Persian manuscript painting. Fortunately, digital facsimiles of the miniatures and folios are still available online.

Here are some of my favorites, starting with this twice-walled Edenic garden floating amidst an orange vegetal sea.
