TEHRAN, March 7 (Mehr News Agency) -- Tehran's Garden Art Museum will be spreading an 88-meter Haft Seen spread from March 15.
Organized by the Ji-Tarhan group, the decorations are arranged to stress the venerable Persian traditions and help convey the true message of Noruz and love toward nature.
The Haft Seen decorations include seven items that begin with the Persian letter "seen," which is pronounced in the same way as "s" in English. They include sib (apple), samanu (a sweet pudding made from wheat seedlings), seer (garlic), sekkeh (coins), sumac (a spice), serkeh (vinegar) and sabzeh (green sprouted seeds).
Anahita Mazidabadi, one of the members of Ji-Tarhan group said that the 88-meter suggests the next Iranian calendar year of 1388, adding, "A big sabzeh (green sprouted seeds) in the shape of Iran's geographical map has been designed and will go on display with the other decorations.
She also mentioned that a special stall will also be set up at the museum to teach about the role of recycled materials in the beautification of green environment, adding, "Seven Persian goddesses made with the recycled materials will also go on display."
Family members and children are invited to bring their recycled materials such as bottles, paper and cardboard, and receive instruction on the advantages of recycling and its role in preserving the environment, she explained.
Several others stalls will also be set up to display the timeless traditions of Noruz as one of the most beautiful Persian celebrations, she concluded.
The museum is located at No.10, Prof. Hesabi St, off Darbandi Ave, in the Tajrish District.
