The Death of Fish
I made a new cylinder seal which depicted fish and
turtles , and I enjoyed seeing the patterns.
The Death of Deer
I continued a
project that I started last month
In recent years on this island some of the deer died. I used sand
stone to make deer feet and printed them on the sand of beach.
in January 2008 that I realized this new project: deer hoof prints and tracks on the sand beach.
Hormoz Island has a number of local deer. In recent years some of the
deer population has died due to a lack of rain and a shortage of “sweet
water” on the island.
People in Hormoz
Island believe that when a deer is thirsty, it comes near the beach and
the sea water then gathers in its foot prints and becomes sweet so that
the deer can drink it. (This is a belief and miracle). The fact is that
now because of a shortage of rain some of the deer have died.
I was inspired by
this belief and by using local lime stone, made deer feet and printed
them on the sand of beach. The artists who participated in the festival
were very excited to see that deer came close to our camp, but the deer
was actually me having printed unusual patterns. (Environmental deer).
