Shadi Ebrahimi: "Homage to Hafiz"

Wonderful little labor of love by Shadi Ebrahimi. Fascinating to learn a bit about Hafiz and the spell he cast on 18th and 19th Century Germans. The calligraphy — "Hafiz" — was commissioned from Bahman Panahi, master Iranian calligrapher, living in France. The tile work is from the ceiling of Hafiz's tomb, and the eyeglasses belonged to Franz Schubert.
