Copies of Farshchian paintings on display in Bashkortostan

TEHRAN, May 29 (MNA) -- A collection of copies of paintings by Iranian miniaturist Mahmud Farshchian is currently on display in an exhibition in the Republic of Bashkortostan.

Entitled “From Heaven to Earth,” the showcase opened during a ceremony at the Bashkir State Teachers Training University in Ufa.


A total of 40 artworks are currently on display, a part of which was displayed during an exhibit at the International Space Station sent on the Progress M-56 cargo vehicle in April 2006.


The station commander and astronaut Pavel Vinogradov who held the previous exhibit sent a message for the opening ceremony of the showcase.


He mentioned in his message that seeing these beautiful paintings at the space station greatly impressed him and that the texts written on the works from Khayyam, Hafez and Rumi gave them that much more impact.


CDs about Iran’s history, culture and tourist attractions in Russian, Persian and English are available for interested visitors and researchers during the exhibit.


The Republic of Bashkortostan or Bashkiria is a federal subject of Russia. It is located between the Volga River and the Ural Mountains. Its capital is Ufa.
