Stunning
[edit: works just fine but to copy the isadora font I had to download again and "Save As" a .zip instead of a .logonxp...just to let ayone else know how to get the font out and put it in their "Fonts" folder in Control Panel. Thanks, sydneysiders, anything of this genre is #1 by me! ]

[edit #2 : yep! that looks a lot better, and thanks for the font, too]

Glad you like it seldomseen...... .....you might be interested in the picture�s history.......it was given to my Dad from the Shah of Iran in 1974. He was living over there for 6 months negotiating for his company to build a number of milk plants across Iran.

It�s painted on ivory (with camel hair I believe) and has a very ornate gold mosaic frame. I agree, it�s a very beautiful genre�

Thanks for the info on the font extraction��another way you can go about it is.... go to C: Program Files ....WinCustomize .....LogonStudio ......Persian musician....and copy the font from there. Will include better instructions for people unsure how to go about it next time though....the font can make quite a difference.

Thanks very much for your comment.....

Great background story! A related note on my end: Once I was visiting my folks, my Dad was a physician, I went to raid the fridge and my Dad called out from the next room,"Don't drink from the mason jar with the yellow stuff in it...its Reza Pahlevi's urine sample"...seems he was the Shah's physician when they were in exile and living in Mexico. I had occasion to hitchike thru that region, Tehran, in the late 60s, from India to Spain, and saw much of the artwork. A wonderful piece you've got there. 'Tashakur' (Thanks in farsi/Persian)

Think we've just found our link for the 'Six Degrees of Separation' theory!... ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_degrees_of_separation
Would have been great travelling through there in the 60's...(though they say if you remember the 60's...you weren't really there!!)
A small world indeed....Tashakur for your anecdote....

So, how many plants did your dad 'milk' the Shah for? Amazing story, Sydney And I thought all you did was chase wallabies and wrestle alligators This is an exceptionally great logon, with not only depth of beauty, but also, depth of family history

'Six Degrees of Separation' theory


That's fascinating. Will have to pursue that string.
The logon is still very arresting when we boot up.
This AM I'd forgotten I'd changed it...
...it was amazing all over again.
Thanks!

If you ever get to the Taj Mahal in Agra, India
you'll be pleasantly surprised at the similarities
in the style and execution of details




watch out for those big reds!
