The calligram exhibition has been held in Mashhad in the north east of Iran to mark the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Fatima al-Zahra (AS).

Iran Press/Iran news: The Exhibition on calligram has been held in 'Rezvan Gallery' located in the holy city of Mashhad. The event coincides with the martyrdom anniversary of respectable daughter of Holy Prophet (SW), Hazrat Fatima al-Zahra (AS).

The exhibition showcases some 20 masterpieces of Mohsen Tavassoli's artistic works, Iran Press reported.

A calligram is a text arranged in such a way that it forms a thematically related image. It can be a poem, a phrase, a portion of scripture, or a single word; the visual arrangement can rely on certain use of the typeface, calligraphy or handwriting, for instance along non-parallel and curved text lines, or in shaped paragraphs.

The image created by the words illustrates the text by expressing visually what it says, or something closely associated; it can also, on purpose, show something contradictory with the text or otherwise misleading. It is noteworthy to mention that Iranian calligram dates back to 100 years ago.104/203
