Dry Walnut Trees Turn Into Works of Art

Five walnut trees that have withered will be transformed into works of art by Iranian master of wooden sculpture Jamshid Moradian in Karaj - the capital of Alborz Province - to fulfill a project commissioned by the Karaj Municipality aimed at the city’s beautification.  
Pointing to the primary preparations to embellish the trees, Moradian said: “In collaboration with my assistant Mohammad-Rasoul Beik, we plan to create abstract art from the trees, while devising some delectable elements to make it appealing to the public,” Honaronline reported
“Rooted in soil, the trees have high quality of wood as they dried up naturally over a long period of time,” he said, adding: “As they became naturally dead, they won’t crack, providing the best material for the creation of sculptures.”
Highlighting the importance of protection of such sculptures, he said they would be “isolated in two phases” to increase their life span to ten years. “The first one is designed at six meters height to make use of the wood as much as possible.”
“As we use electrical appliances, the rainy weather will stall the work due to safety concerns; therefore, it is difficult to anticipate the exact date of completion,” he added.

  Other Specialties
Born in 1951, Moradian is a member of the Sculptors Association of Iran. His other specialties are:  philosophy and history of art, comparative philosophy of East and West, world literature and mythology.
His started his artistic activity in the classical realistic style of art. Later throughout his life, due to his experience and transcendental transformation, it turned to surrealism and post-modern schools respectively.
He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions both in Iran (six exhibitions) and abroad (15). Previously, he made sculptures of three dried trees located in Tehran’s Amirkabir University courtyard.
