Problem statement: Unwillingness for objectivity and an aversion to total adherence to subjectivity in the Qajar era art, have created a real-imaginary world. The motifs of angels dressed in Qajari attire and being influenced by Western ideals have their roots in this way of thinking. Therefore, with the assumption that angels in the works of Hojat Amani have the role of angel motifs in the contemporary art of the Qajar period, this study seeks to examine the adaptation and evolution of angels in the Qajar era and contemporary art. So far the comparative role of angels has not been examined and the hidden layers of the angelic works of these two eras have not been studied. The originality of this research lies in this area.
Research objective: The main purpose of this study is to show the utilization of the role of angels and their formation process in contemporary art, to use adaptation and survey results to answer the questions raised in this study.
Research method: This comparative research uses descriptive-analytical methods, along with statistics, documentary sources, and interviews.
Conclusions: In comparison with the Qajar era art, the project of postmodern angels with the feminist view of Hojat Amani, brings wider social meanings to the contemporary era in addition to having the components of the traditional art of the Qajar period, both visually and conceptually. It also delivers a resurrection of the human desire to ascend beyond matter and to place itself above the human condition that exists in the most ancient layers of Iranian culture and the general public.
