“Emptiness Of You” by Iranian artist Nafir features stencil portraits over traditional Persian carpets. The map of the carpet was originally from Kashan City. Most Iranian Kashans follow a medallion-and-corner pattern. Kashan stands for the highest standards and traditional production of the finest craftsmanship, and are mostly knotted from very good wool.
Additionally, these carpets used were old and damaged. It was repurposed as canvas for the stencil paintings.
