Archetypes are recurring patterns which manifest in varying manners in legends and myths of different nations.

Archetypes are as diverse as human condition.

Jung believes that archetypes inhabit our collective unconscious and repeatedly manifest in our lives.

A knowledge of these archetypes and their legendary and mythical manifestations open a pathway to the depth of our being and helps us in understanding our inner selves

As deceased dear Janet Lazarian Mentioned in Iran daily newspaper (January 1998):
Apparently a relatively unknown art to most viewers, tapestry is actually an ancient branch of Persian hand-weaving art.

Similar to painting and other plastic arts, tapestry too has undergone gradual transformations throughout centuries. Introduction of unconventional materials into tapestry has added a new dimension to this traditional art and enabled it to advance on modern lines. This transition occurred in Europe and later on in the United States in ‘60.

Shahrzad Gharavi’s tapestries are divided into two distinct categories of traditional and modern weaving.

Her tapestries are characterized by strict contrasts, both in texture and color. Some of her works display her elaborate touch in reconciling the past with the present trends. The contrast between traditional, finely-woven kilims against coarser material like gunny was appealing.

Besides the conventional fibers, Gharavi used copper stripes, wool and synthetic fibers. An old latticed door and window decorated with exotic weavings reflected Gharavi’s outlook, and attracted much attention
