An extraordinary and experienced miniaturist. He works at the entrance room of his shop and we can watch him painting. In a few minutes he painted a famous Iranian poet's head in a 5X5cm white tile. There are artful paintings for all tastes and budgets.

This well known miniaturist is so amiable and generous of his time if you are genuinely interested in this intricate art form. He is informative and will show you his artistry and how it is done. No pressure to buy.

You will find cheaper miniturists in Eshfahan but no finer one than Fallahi. Visited in 2013 (not March 2016 in the drop down list) and happy to see he is still there.

Talented artist with skill, its a family run business/shop. The prices can be steep. We bought a miniature for US65. You can pay using your international credit card in this shop.
