The wax statue of veteran Iranian actor Ali Nasirian has been unveiled during a ceremony at the Eternal Figures Museum in Tehran’s Sa’ad Abad Historical and Cultural Complex.

The head of the Visual Arts Office affiliated to the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, Muhammad Shaloui and the general director of Monitoring and Evaluation Department, Alireza Sajjadpour attended the ceremony held on May 29, 2011.

Renowned artist Mahmoud Farshchian alongside a number of leading Iranian actors such as Davoud Rashidi, Muhammad Ali Keshavarz and Jaleh Olov also took part in the event.

“The first theater festival in Iran was held by Ali Nasirian and it is my honor that I was under his training in theater,” said the prominent actor, Mohammad Ali Keshavarz.

The 77-year-old actor, Nasirian, said that his “interest and deep fondness led me to the arena of drama in which I have always expressed my true feeling and emotions.”

The life-size statue was designed and made by sculptor Hamid Lankarani.

Nasirian first appeared in a supporting role in Dariush Mehrjui’s The Cow (1969), which was also the first film in which actor Ezatollah Entezami appeared.

Mr. Simpleton (1970), The Postman (1971), The Cycle (1974), Kamalolmolk (1983), Mirza Norouz’s Shoes (1985), The Stone Lion (1986), Captain Khorshid (1987), and The Scent of Joseph’s Shirt (1995) are among his better-known films.
