Title: The Eternal Birthday (تولد ابدی) Year: 2021 Medium: Oil on Canvas Dimension: 12" X 16”
Two or three days before the first anniversary of his martyrdom, he came to his mother’s dream and stated “remember I told you this time when I come, I wanted to celebrate my birthday? Two or three days from now is my birthday, you should prepare”. Shahram Rezaei was executed by a shot to the forehead during his mandatory military service by his officer who was incited by a mullah to harass and finally execute a 19 year-old Baha’i youth (10/17/1977 – 9/7/1997).
The two seasons in the painting represent both the season of his birth and that of his Martyrdom, which merged and is celebrated on one day.
