Teheran Wakwak - Iran 19th Century

Museum room. A tree of life, symbolizing the link between the Earth, the world of the temporal and the Sky, a world of timelessness, mysteries and myths, spreads a vigorous branch or gives birth to a multitude of flowering stems, all more exuberant and colorful | as well as its roots are firmly anchored to the ground, drawing their strength from the nourishing soil. If the first half of the inferior field is exceptional by its vegetal decoration, decorated with two birds and other animals, the upper part (the foliage of the tree) is just as extraordinary of allegorisms. symbolism and graphics. A canopy of ivory hue, with delicate pastel flowers, serves as a support for a scene, or animals real, mythological animals and evil beings, we recreate a fantastic ecosystem. Evil is represented by a devilish being, head monstrous and mounted on a camel held by a second demon at the tail, who is trying to take possession of the property. and by an animal, with the appearance of dragons, which pushes its offspring (literally and figuratively) to pervert the world of light to attract him to the world of darkness. The forces of evil are trying to to defeat the forces of Good by uttering "yelps", in Persian "Wak-Wak", hence the name of this decoration. The Camel is formed of several demon (on the legs the neck ect) The origin of this subject, of philosophical, legendary and historical inspirations is the perfect symbol of the syncretism of Persian, Indian and Hellenistic.
