A very beautiful and meaningful work of painting (miniature) by master Mahmoud Farshchian called "To be and not to be" is kept in the Book and Art Museum. In this painting, Farshchian depicts a family that is doing their daily work and at the same time, the man dies in front of the woman's bewildered eyes. An angel is seen above this family holding the cup of death. Farshchian has actually intended the presence of an angel with a cup in the shape of a human head skeleton in his hand to mean that life and death are very close together.
