Book of Kings Illustrated in Reverse Glass Painting

A group of art students plan to show pictures and stories from Shahnameh (Book of Kings), the famous Persian epic poems by Ferdowsi (940-1020). They have illustrated the stories on glass through the technique of reverse glass painting. “A team of art students at Malek Museum in Tehran have been working on Shahnameh and its epic stories on glass using the reverse glass painting technique,” Mehrnoush Besharat, the head of the team, told ISNA in a recent interview. Reverse glass painting is a technique whereby paint is applied to a piece of glass and the resulting image can be viewed by turning over the glass and looking through it at the image. They started work on the project last December and have so far finished several canvases. Their works will be displayed at museums and art galleries across Tehran around December. There is still no official word on the  date and venue of the exhibitions.
