No.07 | National Hero | June, 2015 | Tehran | Iran

● Technique: Acrylic | From D.L. Mural group
● Fellow artist in execution process: Ali Davtalab
● Selected (second prize – honorary diploma) of the Third National Mural Biennial “Shahedan-e-Shahr”
● This mural represents the face of one of the victims of the war with Iraq (Hasan Bagheri) in 1983. In this work, we tried to avoid the common stereotypes of face representation in Iranian murals, which is full of violent atmosphere of war. The choice of the image format is in order to introduce more of the characteristics and personality of the dead, in spite of the common political ideals. This work, for the first time, presented a new method for representing the face in Iranian murals.
