This work is made of ceramic.
The present work, as an inspiration from the great effort made by the birds in the legend “the conference of the birds” to reach their ” utopia” ( their lost paradise),is the reflection of the inner world of the artist, which consists of the artist’s feelings and personal experiences in both individual and collective contexts ; in other words, Simurgh is the reflection of the whole solitude and restrictions experienced by the artist in her personal life, and correspondingly the reflection of the dominant social atmosphere in the in her country. Simurgh represents an individual which exists as a potential embryo but shut in a shell which deprives him from any opportunity to actualize his potentiality; as if he is imprisoned in a sealed cage. From the artists point of view, although the set of the thirty birds creates a whole unit, but each of them is peculiar and distinct. Thus, each of them is imprisoned in a single and separate cage.
