This painting depicts an ancient, traditional Persian art form of copper pot crafting. One can almost hear the echo of the hammering through the brush strokes in this Iranian watercolor. I was interested and watched these three Iranian craftsmen creating their grand pot. The master Iranian coppersmith does the final hammer stroke while another man turns the huge pot, and the other coppersmith is the one who, with strong hammering forms the copper, in this ancient Persian art form.
