The Parrot and Grocer is a re-creation of an allegory of the same title in Rumi's Masnavi. In this narration, the author has taken a new approach that shows both the rhythm of the original narration and a new rhythm of the novel version.
This reflects the modern rhythm that exists in the repetitive structures of the images when you read and see the frames.
The illustration of Parrot and Grocer won the third prize in the NAMI award in 2017 and the honorary diploma of the Bologna Prize in 2018.
This work is taken from an ancient story that is mentioned in Kelileh and Demneh and centuries later, Rumi in Masnavi has included it in an allegorical form in one of his poems. This is a story of elephants who, due to the thirst and dryness of their land, decide to go to the land of rabbits, where a beautiful and watery spring, known as the spring of the moon, boils.
