The White Moose Summer Exhibition
22nd June - 29th August
Pairadaeza, the old Persian word for an enclosed space also lends its name to the notion of the Persian, Garden of Paradise.
The Persian palaces and temples were surrounded by gardens, and every city had private, and sometimes public, gardens; opened to all during Persian New Year celebrations.
