ABOUT THIS PERSIAN ART WORK FROM IRANIAN ARTIST - REZA KARIMI:

An ancient, 17th century Persian bathhouse is depicted in this artwork. The towels are hung to dry at the entrance, which is symbolic of the Persian bathhouse being open. This unique composition and its simple subject matter is one of my favorite Iranian paintings. The treatment of the forms {towels, the architecture of the entry door etc.} makes this painting almost an abstract work. The center of this Iranian painting has a mirror reflecting the towels and also a symbol of good luck at the entry. The light bulb at the entry signifies that this bathhouse is for men only, when it is on. Above the entry door there are Persian mosaic tiles.
