Iran’s rich literary and cultural heritage has inspired Farah’s work. Specifically, Persian miniatures greatly inspired her work. The stories that are portrayed in the minarets portray love, violence, friendship, and family. Just as each minaret tells many stories, so does each of Farah’s works. In one work for example, both day and night are represented. In another work, both heaven and hell are portrayed on the same canvas. Farah brings it all together, “life is full of both,” she states. Farah likes to bring these miniatures into the modern day, and she enjoys mixing the traditional with the new. Iranian poems have also greatly inspired Farah’s work. She places great importance in these poems since they are timeless. Love, family, honor, as well as many other themes and issues of today’s world are timeless. The same issues portrayed in these hundreds of years old poems, are still significant in society today. Farah admires the timelessness of these poems, which demonstrate that human nature never changes.
