The Iranian female artist Akram Khatibi's Persian Gulf tablet has been unveiled at the opening ceremony of her painting exhibition in the capital of Tehran.
A number of officials and art lovers attended the ceremony held at the UESCO Cultural Commission Center in Tehran on May 12, 2012.
"Such arts express the artist's love and efforts," said the Secretary General of UNESCO Cultural Commission in Iran Mohammad Saeed- Abadi, while calling the unveiled tablet a memorable piece of art.
The tablet has been made of the Persian Gulf's soil, golden foil, colored soil of Hormuz Island, lapis and turquoise, Khatibi explained.
The 1 meter by 1.5 meters tablet, which was completed in four years, illustrates the current map of Persian Gulf, the leading artist added.
