Children’s Illustrations of Shahanameh at Arasbaran

On the occasion of Ferdowsi Commemoration Day (May 15), Arasbaran Cultural Center in Tehran is holding a group exhibition of illustrations by children and young adults, inspired by stories from the Shahnameh (book of Kings), the epic book of Persian poet Ferdowsi (940-1020). 
Shahnameh, the world’s largest epic poem written by one poet, mainly focuses on the mythical and, to some extent, historical past of the Persian Empire from the creation of the world until the Islamic conquest of Persia in the 7th century.
The exhibit will continue till May 16. It has been organized jointly by Tehran-based Ferdowsi Foundation and Radmehr Art Institute in collaboration with the Cultural & Art Organization of Tehran Municipality.
Among the works on display are four 30x40 cm illustrations on the story of Zal and Simorgh by two 9-year-old participants Amir-Ali and Amir-Mehdi Mostaqimi, Mehr News Agency reported on its Persian website.
