“Little is known about the still lives of Aziza Mehran Ahmad. They include collections of plants, puppets and textiles that might have been gathered from her travels, bought in Paris or come as gifts from his friends. They possibly were made out of memories of forgotten places, producing shadows that render the quest for their origin as obsolete as it would be to try and define the identity of their maker.“
