In the Spring of 2013, I was approached by the British museum to produce a piece for the exhibition of WISE MEN FROM THE EAST. This is the description of my work which was on display for 6 months in the coin department of the museum.
“The Iranian-born artist Afsoon has chosen a coin of the Sasanian king Khusrau II Parviz (AD 591–628) as the central subject of her print commissioned for this exhibition. The winged crown of the king, the birds and the sewn pearls all allude to the Kingly Glory. The cypress trees and clouds are in the style of Persian miniature paintings.” – The British Museum
