Artist Inspiration: Film Director Sergei Parajanov

These images are actually screenshots from

the film poem The Color of Pomegranates (1968)

by acclaimed film director

Sergei Parajanov (1924-1990).

MIRROR AND POMEGRANATE

The impossibly sensual photographs found here

bid me to know more about the story behind the story…


but the story behind the story actually

has multiple stories behind it.

Parajanov’s The Color of Pomegranates

honors the Armenian priest, poet,

and “king of songs”

Sayat Nova.

MIRROR AND POMEGRANATE

Sayat Nova was executed in 1795

by the army of Agha Mohammed Khan

for refusing to renounce his Christian faith.

But love always wins.

His poetry and artistry lives on.

Here I am 300 years later,

a 40-something suburban chic blogger

sharing with you a line from Nova’s Love Song:

“Thou art a gold-embroidered tent
to shield me from the heat.”

Peace to you right where you are.
