Nose job


Iran has one of the highest rates of 'nose job' in the world. Apparently, Rhinoplasties have been performed since the Achaemenid Empire.

First family photo

My grandfather Aref o-Shariyeh and my uncle Hesamodin Arefi

Move the cursor over the image to see it in colour!

I think the photo was taken in Shiraz around 1900. In 1944 my uncle - the boy in the photo - became the Mayor of the City of Shiraz .

Circumcised Abbas


Overlooking the ancient village of Cerne Abbas, Dorset, the Giant stands proud (in more ways than one) on the hillside. This chalk figure, depicting an aroused naked man wielding a club, is the largest chalk hill figure in Great Britain. The Cerne Abbas Giant is 180 feet high with an astounding 30-foot phallus. The Cerne Abbas Giant's manhood is causing even more of a stir than usual, it's suddenly turned purple. Vandals not only painted his manhood purple but also used permanent paint. The attack has angered the National Trust, which owns the site in Dorset.

My mother doesn't like white orchids so I painted them red!
It reminds me of the rose-tree in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
