In these series, Ali Akbar Sadeghi is putting on display a dreamlike world in Persian ceremonies which has been unwritten in his view. These huge tricuspid and quadruple painting is literally showing “Persian Ceremonies” in full detail – animals, trees, worrier and heroes filling up the entire landscape.

 

 Ceremony in gardens possess a sublime quality in Iranian culture, and are considered an immortal heritage. Any endeavour to create a historic and traditional scenario is an effort toward representing the paradise promised to mankind in the Holy Scripture. It is a symbol of the heaven and a symbolic bridge to the other world that is satiated in these series.

 

This splendid works of Ali Akbar Sadeghi are a representation of Persian mythical account in a form of quadruple Persian gardens or tricuspid batter field and ceremony. Absence of any perspective as in the western classic art is indicating a direct influence of miniature painting on the work. Similar to many Iranian miniature paintings, especially miniature paintings of the Teymouri period and works created by followers of Shiraz School.

 

The artist’s view towards classic Persian ceremonies have given much panoramic world. The intricate detailing in these paintings become so dense that from a certain distance it appears a pattern. A pattern that contains historic narration full of forms and colours.

 

A cursory look at the history of Iranian art reveals that Ali Akbar Sadeghi experimented for the first time with the representational style of this work in illustrating a book titled The Hero of Heroes, 1970. He depicted icons in the book that over decades, are still considered his signature works in heroic and lyrical realms. The book was a starting point for him to forge a visual model, where it verges on a setting replete with stories and parables.
