Makhachkala, May 23, 2014. A series of East Indian paintings named "Gul-ile-Bul-bul" done by young artists Zaira Magomedova and Halimat Saidudinova is being presented at the "1st Gallery" of contemporary art in Kaspiysk, the project curator - Gallery Director Jamilia Dagirova – told RIA "Daghestan".
The "Gul-ile-Bul-bul" name is known to all lovers of oriental culture and those interested in art and literature of Persia which, apart from the bloody wars of conquest, was pursuing a policy of cultural expansion. Gul-ile-Bul-bul is a Persian phrase meaning "a flower and a nightingale". They are the ornamental patterns combining floral motifs (often with roses) and drawings of birds. The project was made through artist Timur Mussaev–Kagan’s concept by his young colleagues from the "Center" studio of contemporary art.
"The project we presented today is an intricate and fascinating world, a paradise they have created for us on canvas and hand-painted fabric, the 28 painted and coloured stories and interpretations of favorite miniatures from the famous "Babur Nameh". They show the same colours, the same mountains, the same majestic animals and birds, the pleasure and beauty of the luxury miniatures made by artful masters of Indian, Safavid and Timurid schools of oriental miniature of the 16th century. It is a wonderful experience of following the aesthetics and beauty of the eastern Renaissance,"- Dagirova noted.
