Title: Tears of Rose Water (اشک گلاب)  Year: 2022  Medium: Oil on Linen  Dimension: 20" X 24”

Written from the third person: The beautiful season of spring had arrived again. As always, I woke up early in the morning to the beautiful sound of birds and the scent of flowers that filled the air.
As a child, I loved this season of the year and the magical scent of flowers. For years, our fathers have turned these fragrant flowers into rose water so that their scent remains for all seasons.
I think our work is one of the most enjoyable things in the world.
In the afternoon, we suddenly saw that a blue pickup truck with a large number of intelligence agents came to our village and raided all our houses, rose water production workshops and warehouses, and took away everything we had from pots and rose water making machines, to gallons of fresh rose water, flowers and etc.... They sealed warehouses and workshops and warned us that you are not allowed to work or to have the right to make rose water.
Of course, this is not the first time that they have persecuted us in this way...
