excuse me I could'nt explain That sentences. It 's a new Problem we are in Now a days . 40 Cheragh ,the Iranian popular teenage Art magazine steels articles from Weblogs and Pulishs it with Other names and Authors!!!

and they are steeling photos of Iranian and international photographers ,publishing it on their own names.!!!!
 
Love the sculpture. In this era where realist artists tend to imitate the Greeks and Romans of antiquity in a never-ending circle were beauty prevails, shying away from subjects such as old age, disability or social conflicts.
 
brilliant piece of postmodern art - looking at the past and combining it with present day issues. but aside from that it shows that art can talk about and comment on contraversial/important matters and still be beautiful!
