Gholam-Hossein Banan Bust Statue
Having the statues of the elders of any land, especially Iran, is a sign of our respect and love for the elders of our land, although if we live outside of Iran, because our culture depends on these elders. Sculptures can be of any gender, they can be of any size and shape, complex or simple, but they certainly each have a message for us. They can be mythical heroes whose names we have heard in stories, or they can be simple geometric shapes.
Gholām-Hossein Banān was an Iranian musician and singer. One of the most prominent Iranian singers of the 20th century, he was renowned for the quality of his voice. Born in Tehran, Banān descended from a prominent family “with a background in government service”. His father, Karim Khan Banān ol-Dowleh (son of Mohammad-Taqi Mirza Fazlollah Khan Mostowfi Nuri) was an admirer of traditional music. His mother was related to the ruling Qajar dynasty of Iran; she was the daughter of Mohammad Taqi Mirza Rokn ed-Dowleh, a brother of Naser al-Din Shah Qajar (r. 1848–1896). Margaret Caton notes that Banān grew up in an environment where artistic development was fostered; his father sang and played the tar, while his mother played piano. Banān’s maternal aunt played the ney, and his sisters studied the tar with Morteza Neidavoud.
