When present in the ruins of Persepolis, Hamid has always had conflicting emotions; sometimes sad sometimes hopeful. At times it travels deep inside him at other times it transcends his mind. However, the strongest sense is a noble pride which is really glorious and dignified. He believes that Persepolis is esteemed as the national pride and this is exactly what nobody even Alexander cannot demolish anytime in history. Respecting this belief, he called this Collection “Persepolis”.
