This artwork depicts an Iranian Now Ruz setting, using antique Persian objects on a traditional Iranian termeh and Persian carpet. This Persian artwork is oil on canvas with the emphasis on strong light and shade. This Iranian painting is composed as a still life and maintains its harmony. It is the Persian tradition to have a pair of lamps in the Now Ruz setting, however, what makes this painting unique, is that it has only one lamp reflected in a mirror to create two lamps. The folded termeh in the foreground of this Persian painting was treated diagonally so that the eye can move and enter into the painting and travel all around the surface. The tone of the painting is very warm and gives the feeling of ancient Persian history.
