 Engraving (Qalam-Zani)

By:Iran Metal Work

 Engraving (Qalam-Zani)  It’s one of the traditional handicrafts of Iran

Elegance of design along with Persian inscriptions with the names of twelve Shiite Imams are the most distinctive features of Safavid metalwork. Delicate candelabrums of different shapes and engraved censers are the main objects of this period. Jewelry-inlaid dishes of copper, which was whitened to resemble silver, flourished in this era to a great extent. Bronze astrolabes were the other metal objects that were produced abundantly during the Safavid rule. That is not astonishing if one recalls that the Safavid kings were notorious for their belief in astronomical warnings. Safavid metalworkers also greatly improved the art of steel articulation. Steel doors and windows for sacred places were produced in abundance and exported during this period. The notable symbol of Safavid metalwork is a lion at tacking or tearing apart a deer, a motif reminiscent of Achaemenid sculpture.
