Soheila Esfahani, Artist

In my art practice, I investigate notions of cultural translation within the diaspora, and “translation” in its etymology means “to carry across” or “to bring across.” I often use cultural objects and patterns that immigrants would bring with them to their new home, and those from Iran would often bring a Persian carpet with them when they move to Canada; therefore, I used traditional Persian carpet designs as my inspiration for this coin. I have also included the lotus flower motif that is prominent in the reliefs of Persepolis, to connect the past and present. As an artist, this project has been a fantastic opportunity for me to come full circle by representing my Iranian heritage within the context of Canada.

Poetry, music, art, and hospitality have always held a prominent place in the deep-rooted history of Iranian culture. They value cultural exchanges and interactions, taking pride in reflecting a strong sense of aspiration to surpass limitations and achieve new heights. The intricate and harmonious design of this coin stands as a remarkable celebration of Iranian culture, drawing from its historical heritage while maintaining an enduring sense of continuity.
