Shiraz Rose

Shiraz Rose

Shiraz is renowned in Iran as the city of roses and poets and this piece probes the historic debate regarding image and symbolism. Is a rose a rose when constructed of cut red glass encased in metal? Is a rose a rose when constructed of a red glass globe and wire filigree blossom? Does verbal solidarity with the Palestinians mean caring about the Palestinian people and a Palestinian state? Materials include a Palestinian glass globe.
