An Iranian general store merchant seated next to old Persian scales. Khonsar is an ancient Persian city near Isfahan. The emphasis in this Persian artwork is on the old scales in front of his store. The light is shining on the old Persian scale which is copper colored and is in contrast against the Persian melons.The old Iranian shopkeeper is sitting in the shadow next to Persian clothing and bolts of Persian fabric. This Iranian watercolor was painted very loosely and the Persian colors are very crisp, bold and skillfully harmonized.
