Naseer Yasna Mansouri

BACK TO REGION

Naseer Yasna Mansouri, presented by Turquoise Mountain, is one of the most accomplished classical carvers in the world, who has now worked on a number of prestigious commissions, from a whole suite of woodwork for London’s Connaught Hotel to producing all the woodwork for UNESCO’s restoration of the Gowhar Shad Mausoleum in Herat. He here reflects on his youth learning woodworking in Tehran, and how this has shaped his practice today.
