Sahar (Maryam) Najafi

Statement

Memories and forgetfulness, what may have faded from the past but they are still in mind. They are in women’s collective memory.
Memory is an image that will be reminded again; and if it was an image of sufferings, it would cause pain and would turn to stones for patience; even if they are decorated with flowers or in the white dress.
”women are patient stone in life” and flower stone is a flower that grow up on stones “For colorless pink or pale.”
