This Persian scene is one of my childhood memories of Isfahan, Iran. It depicts a summer scene under a Mulberry tree. The shopkeeper sells delicious Persian ice cream, which is so refreshing on a hot Persian summer day. He uses the ice-cream stand to tie his awning in place and the shadow of the Mulberry tree is depicted on the old Persian awning. An Iranian boy with two Persian girls are dressed from the era of my childhood in Iran.
