Lost Pearl



20130514195452-5e0279e1.jpg Dying Shirin Thumbnails Leyli in love

Shirin is a mythical fairytale character. Through the
power of her love for the king Kasra, Shirin tries to
fight his immorality. Nizami Ganjavi in 'Khosro and Shirin' depicted this woman
as a key figure in the emancipation of women.
The powerful love of Shirin should continue to be regarded as a rare pearl.
