The Shah Mosque of Isfahan
Built during the Safavid period, it is an excellent example of Islamic architecture of Iran, and regarded as one of the masterpieces of Persian Architecture. The Shah Mosque of Isfahan is one of the everlasting masterpieces of architecture in Iran. It is registered, along with the Naghsh-i Jahan Square, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its construction began in 1611, and its splendor is mainly due to the beauty of its seven-colour mosaic tiles and calligraphic inscriptions.

Gerhard Richter - Seascape (Sea-Sea). Oil on canvas, 200x200 cm (1970)
German painter Gerhard Richter, whose approach to art is classical, has maintained a lifelong fascination for the new relationships between paintings and photography. His pictures, painted from his own photographs or from press pictures, were imbued with a strict expressive neutrality. With his large canvases representing landscapes, mountains, clouds and seascapes, he has established himself as a worthy heir to the German Romantic tradition.

My name is Hollie and I live in Chattanooga with my husband and two children. I seem to be addicted to the most complicated form of recycling and in Tennessee you’re never more than a few minutes from an antique store. On the best days I’m found up to my elbows in steamer trunks piled with scraps of crumbling paper, dusty, tattered books stacked to the ceiling. I bring it all back here and give it a second life. I always have the forest, fairy tales and music close to me so that comes out the most.
