This Iranian artwork juxtaposes the cool, shady water of a Persian pool against the bright, sun-baked Persian summer sky, in an Iranian home. Yazd is an old Persian city, in central Iran and the design of the architecture would accommodate a summer section and a winter section within one house. On the top of the roof you can see the ancient Persian air cooler {catcher}. In a typical house you would see a pool and an Iranian designed bench over the pool. In the evening, this bench was used for tea and snacks. The reflection of all of these elements is noted in the water of the pool.
