World-renowned Iranian miniaturist Mahmoud Farshchian has created a painting featuring the kindness of Imam Ali (AS) toward the orphans.
The painting titled, ‘Refuge’ is themed on the first Shia Imam whose martyrdom anniversary falls today on May 4.
Farshchian has depicted three stages of the life of Imam Ali (AS) in three paintings including ‘Refuge’ that illustrates Imam Ali’s (AS) hospitality, kind nature, and care for the orphans. He has portrayed the Imam without revealing his face while hugging two orphans like a caring father.
Farshchian has painted several other paintings of religious figures from the Holy Prophet’s household such as Hazrat Abolfazl and Hazrat Ali-Asghar.
