(Sabzi tantalizes us with beautiful shapes and intricate symbolism. The viewer is free to interpret the images emotionally......based on his or her own experiences. Here are a few of Sabzi‘s thoughts to help you along.)
Violins: They have special significance because they remind me of my childhood and my uncle playing the violin for my enjoyment. As an adult, I appreciate the violin for its shape - similar to that of a woman’s body.
Woman: The bearer of all; the bearer of life. She has many sides to her and I show this as shades of light and dark in her face. The dark side shows mystery; the light side is what we see every day. I often place a woman in the center of my paintings as she is the center of the universe like Mother Nature.
Trees: For me, they symbolize the regeneration of nature. They can also be religious as in the story of Adam and Eve.
Metal Blocks: They connect the industrial nature of human life with the metaphysical.
Birds: They represent peace, nature and freedom.
Stitches: They are a way of connecting the worlds of here and the future; physical and metaphysical; real and fantasy.
Cats: They represent the mysterious side of a woman’s personality. They can choose you....you do not choose them. The shape of a cat is smooth, soft and elegant...like a woman.
Fish: They are often painted in pairs to represent the unity of man and woman. They are also awake all the time and, in this sense, symbolize angels that are not of this world. Their environment is water: transparent, pure and clean...like angels.

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
