Background The palace of Chehel-Sotoun, an exquisite pavilion set in pools amid beautiful gardens, was built for Shah Abbas II of Persia. The murals, some now lost or displaced, mixed the historical and, as here, the aesthetic. This poster was one of a series featuring work by the photographer Asad Behroozan.
