|Jamshid Moradian to turn dried trees at Tehran university into sculptures||
The project was commissioned by university officials, and Moradian has begun the primary preparations, the Persian service of ISNA reported on Tuesday.
“And now one of the trees has been covered by a large plastic, and insecticides and fungicides have been applied to make the wood free from ailments and prepared for a sculpture,” Moradian said.
Moradian has plans to create an abstract form out of the three-meter high dried tree.
The idea to turn the dried trees into sculptures was first proposed by Moradian to the Tehran Municipality.
In summer 2012, three young sculptors and students of Moradian made sculptures out of three dried pine trees situated in the courtyard of Tehran’s Enqelab Sports Club.
