Environmental artist Ahmad Nadalian begins with creating a sculpture depicting some ornament, and then makes imprints on the sand with it. The author says that he was inspired to do this by ancient principles of printing.
Ahmad Nadalian attempts to combine the secrets of ancient rituals with modern art. The ancient printing technique is based on rotating a cylinder that leaves a repeating pattern. The most popular are images of living beings and floral patterns. He leaves a myriad of impressions drawn on the sands of deserts and beaches. Moreover, the author himself considers this to be some kind of a ritual. He says that this is an offering to Earth, which then takes the images through winds and tides.
