Enameled works on show in Tehran

March 12, 2019

TEHRAN - An exhibit, featuring collections of enameled works by 15 Iranian crafters, has opened doors to the public in Tehran’s Sa’dabad Cultural-Historical Complex, IRNA reported.

Minakari or Enameling is the art of painting, coloring and ornamenting the surface of metals by fusing over it brilliant colors that are decorated in an intricate design.

Visitors may also tour the complex, itself a top tourist destination of the Iranian capital. Sprawled on about 110 hectares of a mountainside parkland, the Sa’dabad was once a royal summer residence during Qajar era (1789–1925) and during its subsequent Pahlavi epoch (1925–1979).

The exhibit will be running through March 16.
