Silverwork Display at Naqsh-e Jahan

An exhibition of fine silverworks is underway at the landmark Naqsh-e Jahan Square in Isfahan.
Titled ‘Metal Whisper,’ (in Persian Najva-ye Felez), the exhibition opened May 6 for 10 days at Qeysarieh Gate --  the main entrance to Qeysarieh Bazaar leading to Naqsh-e Jahan Square which is one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites, according to Chtn.ir.
The exhibition features metalworks and engravings on silver, with geometric and miniature designs. The event is organized by the Isfahan Handicrafts Guild Association.
Isfahan, Tabriz and Shiraz are the main centers for engraving or ‘qalamzani.’ The craft is the art of carving delicate traditional designs on different metals such as copper, brass, silver, gold and other alloys.
