The brick is considered as one of the initial elements of human civilisation that has an important role in history because of its durability. Abolghasem Akhavian, who knows the nature of bricks so well, had chosen them as a vehicle for the presentation of his unique art. He is the only one left from a generation and carves the ancient bricks inspired by Islamic gnosticism, and presents some extraordinary works of art. The film recounts the process of carving bricks as well as Akhavian’s life and ideas.
