Certain types of mirrors were imported to Iran from Venice in sixteen century. The pieces that were broken along the route were ingeniously incorporated by Iranian artists into the walls of the grand buildings of that era and thus started a tradition that lives on. Mirror is a metaphor for light and lucidity. The geometrical cuts that are achieved using diamond – one of the purest of substances- reduces from the homogeneity of the surface, but it accentuates the glitter ten folds. Once you immerse in this radiance and glow, it appears as if you have reached the other side, for this perception you need to believe in light.
