Definition of tradition designing of Iran
Drawing and designing of artificial works in the form of general pattern and symbolic portraits that mixed with abstract resources derived from nature or similar to nature. One of the important principle of Iranian portrait is repetition and symmetry of figures. Portraits related to the traditional designing of Iran include figures before Eslam and figures of the Islamic era. Figures of before Eslam include motifs of creatures and plants that formed based on thoughts and ceremonial understandings. As like as figures of crockery and glazed and glassy shaft like stamps of Elami's era. Numeral figures like golden and silver dishes and lithography of Hakhamaneshi's era. Herbaceous figures of Takhte Jamshid are numerical completely and by using the symmetric method with blue lotus flowers, have covered a wide portion of walls. Figures of the Islamic era include broken figures and versatile figures. Broken figure: angular and numerical figure. Broken figures include patterns that formed by straight lines. These patterns are based on horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines. Numerical figures include tie figures that 2,3 or 4 plain round tables tied to each other according to the special principles and rules and created beautiful figures. Javad Shafahi has recognized 283 kind ties in the artificial tie-making books. Versatile figures include designs that consist of round lines Eslimi or Eslami is the figure that formed by the spiral motion, it formed like components of the plant and includes seed, stem, bud, leaves, and flower that converted to the sackbut. So, we can say that spiral Eslimi and circuit zigzag that often symmetric or asymmetric, are reminders of the torsion of the plant's stem. However, we must note that torsions of Eslimi's tie follow special rules. This pattern has been known from Saljoghi and Teimori's eras. Kind of Eslimi includes simple Eslimi, broken eslimi, full inside eslimi, empty eslimi, torpedo Mouth eslimi, snake eslimi, proboscis eslimi. Khatai - this pattern consists of bud, flower, and leaves. These figures move among eslimi's figures. Kind of Khatai flowers include Shah Abassi's or euphorbia flower, five wing flower. Potentially, the traditional design of Iran has an independent identity and used for embellishing applicable threads like figures on the earthenware, wood, metal, fabric, carpet, arranging book, brick, and tile, tore, and lithography.
