The magic art of Enameling

Enameling in Isfahan is an art with a 5000-year history and is currently performed on copper. In the old days, it was done on gold and silver. This art is a combination of fire and soil combined with the art of painting to create exquisite designs. Enameling is also old among other nations. The Persian enamel is said to have gone from Iran to other countries once researchers had adapted Byzantine enamel to the Persian enamel.

The summit is largely viewed as a US bid to deter other nations from cooperating with Iran. Anti-establishment chatter has used the hashtag #WeSupportPolandSummit. The desired effect appears to be to artificially create a trend which hints at popular support for the summit and - by extension - widespread resentment towards the Iranian establishment. This research is part of a wider investigation into opposition social media activity by Iranians.”
