A master of Persian painting and miniatures, Mahmud Farshchian, has donated one of his new works to the Astan-e Qods Razavi Museum in Mashhad.

“Heaven on the Earth” was unveiled on Sunday during a special ceremony attended by a number religious figures and Astan-e Qods Razavi custodian Ebrahim Raisi, Tehran Times reports.

The painting measuring 101x82.5 centimeters depicts Hazrat Zainab (SA), the sister of Imam Hussein (AS), and a number of angels mourning for the Imam after being martyred at Karbala in 680 CE.

A collection of 16 other paintings by Farshchian are on display in a special section dedicated to artworks from the 87-year-old artist.

The collection contains his masterpieces “The Evening of Ashura”, “Ali-Asghar (AS)” and “The Standard-Bearer of Truth”, all of which are about the martyrdom of the Imam.

The ceremony came to an end with the unveiling of a copy of the Holy Quran engraved on 114 plates of granite by Davud Zamani-Azar.
