Iran Persia National Tourist Organization Travel Poster

  • ca 1970s
  • 27 x 39 inches ~ (68 x 99 cm)
  • Unbacked

    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $190 and take approximately 6-8 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

  • The principal athletic apparatus of Zurkhaneh (Persian traditional sports club)

    Varzesh Bastani, meaning ‘ancient sport’ is a traditional Iranian system of athletics. Originally used to train warriors, it combines martial arts, calisthenics, strength training, spirituality, ethics, devotion, literature, art, and music. It fuses elements of pre-Islamic Persian culture (Zoroastrianism, Mithraism, and Gnosticism) with the spirituality and code of ethics of Shia Islam and Sufism. Varzesh-e Bastani is practiced in a dome structure called the ‘Zurkhaneh’ which, when translated into English, means house of strength.
