"Obscured fragments of a fairy tale" consists of fifteen individual cropped images of a classic Iranian Miniature painting, originally painted by MirMusavvir ( Persian illustrator and painter, late 15th century).
The Original painting illustrates a passage of story by Firdowsi‘s Shahnameh (Hakīm Abu'l-Qāsim Firdowsī Tūsī, highly revered Persian poet 940-1020 C.E.) passage of which is about a story teller talking about bravery of Rostam (a well known Iranian myth) to his audience.
The concept of this set is how a tale's reading can be changed if only selected parts of that story is shown.
It illustrates the unclear and manipulated image of the reality formed in people's mind as the result of incomplete and selected information they receive every day.
