JEWELRY

JEWELRY

Works of Parviz Tanavoli – 1  /  21 x 21 cm  /  96 pages  /  Bilingual  /  First Edition 2008

I do not know whether or not it’s correct to refer to the works in this book as jewelry. Perhaps it would be preferable to use another word for them, since in the traditional culture of Iran the term “jewelry” usually designates a combination of precious stones and gold, and such pieces are usually elaborate and delicate. Yet, what in this book is called jewelry concerns tiny sculptures made of silver and they bear little relationship to conventional jewelry — except for their use as ring, bracelet, and necklace.
