The Persian Shirins (”shirin” means sweet in Farsi) are all the women who have been drawn in the book of old Persian drawings. These women were all in the king's castles to entertain him while being the main subject of the drawings. Women have always been the main subject and this discrimination is shown in a nicer way in these modern illustrations of them. These illustrations are all printed with Riso and on French paper. This package contains four prints of Qajari women with a small card explaining them.
