Types of artwork

The woodwork mosaic is actually a mix of different wood alongside a beautiful design. Creation is, in fact, the side-by-side placement of small pieces of wood, and then creating the desired role with the use of natural wood colors.
In addition to woodwork, simple mosaics, tile mosaics, ceramic mosaics, mosaics and leather mosaic, there are also similarities in general, but each of them has a special beauty paradigm.


The History of Moaragh kari

Due to the fact that wood is a relatively unstable material and a low-longevity of nature, works made over time have been eliminated due to various events and factors, or that nobody was thinking of the maintenance and collection of wooden handmade products.

As a result, no significant wooden works of different historical periods have been left out. However, researchers consider different times as the source for wood sculptures.

It is said that the wood mosaic is inspired by the tile flame. As the tile industry begins to decay, the wood mosaic has started to grow. The mosaic appeared at the time of the Ilkhanid era and reached the peak of its flourishing in the eighteenth century.

One of the historical and beautiful monuments of that time is the Soltanieh dome. Among other examples of mosaic tiles can be the red dome of Maragheh, another historical monument of the time of the Ilkhanites.
The specimen of the mosaic tile is a red dome of Maragheh that was built at the time of the Ilkhanis. One of the most beautiful examples of it during the Timurid period is Soltanieh's dome.

Another view is that woodwork is not a technique in which various shapes and types of mosaic, including tile, have been taken. One who is active in the field of woodworking is to work not only with wood, but also to know and recognize its texture, but also to learn the techniques of woodworking.

Another quote from India, China, and the Islamic Republic of Iran, said that three thousand years ago, the Egyptian people were among the first to realize the value and benefits of wood, and with the usual wood, the necessary equipment for the chair, the box and ... They constructed high-quality bouquets, such as Abruzzo and Amazonas.
Dated to 1309, the first traditional workshops were created by the professor Hussein Taherzadeh Behzad for the sake of teaching and protecting the national arts of Iran and protecting the craftsmanship of Iran. The first educational subject was the carving workshop under the supervision of Professor Ahmad Emami and his sons Khalil and Ali.

In the following year, 1310, a grid of woodwork was added to the previous workshop. The workshop was run by the professors of mosaics and caretakers including: Shahmirzadi, Ahmad Rana, Zabali, Visayi, Haj Gholamali and in 1370 by professor Kamal Mir-etibi. Currently, this position is under the responsibility of Master Mallah in the Cultural Heritage Organization.

The oldest piece of work was obtained in the burnt town of Zabul. It is a wooden shoulder that carries the geometric patterns. It dates back to the fifth millennium BC.

Some believe that the shoulder was owned by foreign travelers who had crossed the city, but according to research on this shoulder it became clear that the designs on it are entirely Iranian. On this basis, it can be said that Iran has been the founder of the art work.
