According to him, he has been searching for this book for a long time and after finding the original version of the stories of Shahnameh, he has dedicated almost thirty years of his best life to this work. Ferdowsi’s statue is more than 50 cm high, weighs about three and a half kilograms and is made of fiberglass. This statue was made in the workshop of “Statue and sculpture of Shahriar”. In this statue, the builder shows Ferdowsi holding a flag in his hand. Definitely, this flag is the flag of Iran, and at the bottom of this statue we see Rustam and the dragon, whose war is one of the seven readings and stories of the Shahnameh. Sculptures can be of any gender, they can be of any size and shape, complex or simple. But each of them definitely has a message for us. They can be mythical heroes whose names we have heard in stories, or they can be simple geometric shapes. They can be the body of a popular poet on a crowded town square, or even a clay bird on a ledge. The statues look like travel. A journey from everyday life to feelings and thoughts, to beauty and, most importantly, to the dialogue of different civilizations, cultures and ideas. Sculptures can represent an idea, culture or civilization. A culture and thought that sometimes speaks to man from past centuries.
