The vacant port in the shore of life, in Khosro Khosravi’s The Port, which describes the border between the sea horizon and us, a port to observe things; a small hatch for us to glance through the life beyond. It is a metaphor on our history and time where borders Persia from the Northerners; and modern Iranians are their successors. As a painting the port depicts our knowledge from time and position, race and a vague future, presented with the kid, his dog, his return, the sea waves, his running into people in different social classes, and the epic poetry of Ferdowsi : all are motifs of our spontenous perceptions.
