Oil on canvas is the only medium that offers means to represent reality realistically. And together with the Safavid visual vocabulary, the artist has created a masterpiece.

Oman Khayyam, born in Iran in the late 11th century is the main protagonist of this painting. He was an astronomer and mathematician at the royal court but he is best known for his poetry. Wine and women formed an integral part of the poet's life. Seen here with Omar Khayyam is a beautiful woman strumming the strings of the instrument, providing him inspiration. He has a cup of wine in one hand as he holds the manuscript in he other, reading out the stanzas to her. A jar of ink with a feather stylus dipped in it sits next to the wine casket.

If the inebriating effect of wine, woman and poetry wasn't enough, there is the moonlit night, with moonbeams falling on the stream. The colour palette of the background, the delicate flowers, the softly undulating hills, all give the painting an ethereal look.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
