Art on Friday; Orientalism

I love Japanese and Chinese paintings. But I've done that a few times already so for today I would love to take you away with me to East Asia to old times when Iran was still Persia and where we can drift away into a world of herbs and spices, of old meeting new and rare beautiful landscapes and animals or people.

This type of painting is called Orientalism.
