The Heech, Parviz Tanavoli, Fibreglass, 2001


This is a photo of a sculpture from Parviz Tanavoli (Fibreglass, 2001), created around three letters in Persian which together make up the word heech meaning 'nothing'. The style of the script is nasta'liq traditionally associated with Iran and often used to write poetry.
Tanavoli is Iran's most foremost sculptor. He trained in Italy with the celebrated Italian sculptor Marino Marini. He has taught and inspired many Iranian artists and his work is exhibited widely. The Heech although playful, hints a sense of dissatisfaction with the present world.
