This landscape from the Iranian town of Abyaneh, depicts the cool shade under ancient apple trees in Persia. While I was visiting in this ancient village; in the alley, I observed that the trees bear so many apples that their weight could easily break the branches. That is why the Iranian villagers prop up the branches with wooden stakes, as depicted in this artwork. The strong light in this Persian artwork indicates the heat of the blistering Persian summer sunshine and the cool respite offered beneath the shade of the Persian apple trees. The cool colors used on the Iranian villager indicates the contrast in light and shade, hot and cold on an Iranian summer day.
