A Comment by my American- Italian artist Abigail Doan

Ahmad Nadalian's carved cylinder seals awaken one to the rich lineage of Persian art making. We are reanimated with the images created by the hand-carved cylinder seals as they are rolled out in the sands, along the oceans and coastlines that we all share. One wants to follow the path of these ancient animations and fish symbols to see where they might lead us. Collaboration with indigenous local materials such as these is empowering in ways that redefine "super (creative) power" and our notions of a global paradise.  More

The Death of Deer

I continued a project that I started last month (January 2008). 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. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was 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.
