Abstract:   (8430 Views)

A significant number of authors, who have debated the characteristics of Iranian arts within philosophy, believe that imaginary and the ideal worlds are the sources of visual arts. They believe that the artist’s imagination, in its rahmanian aspect is the origin of the creation of a real work of art .This research has aimed to explain the world of ideas by means of the characteristics of Iranian visual arts.

To achieve this aim, quantitative analysis has been employed to investigate the relevant study materials. On this basis, imagination has been employed by the artist to reach the world of ideas, which is a middle world between materiality and spirituality. The world of ideas contains detached and connected parts. Detached 7 part shapes the generous imagination and connected part illustrates the sensual mind. However, not everyone can realize the detached part; thus, Iranian artists have used pictorial methods to transfer the heritages of the world of idea.

Traditionally, it would be ideal if the Iranian artists could use the detached world of idea as a source of inspiration. They were already inspired by the ancient world to use some symbols in order to reflect the generous imagination inside their virtue. This method has been supported by mystical tradition during Islamic age. Therefore, this hypothesis can be raised that the ideal world is the major aspect of Iranian art before and after appearance of Islam.

Keywords: ideal world, detached imagination, attached imagination, symbol, artwork
