Pupils from Little Heath School, a special school in the London Borough of Redbridge, were inspired by the Everlasting Flame: Zoroastrianism in History and Imagination exhibition at SOAS, University of London’s Brunei Gallery earlier this month.
The exhibition was the starting point for the school to explore Zoroastrianism in such depth for the first time. One of the Little Heath school staff has a Parsi background and this also enriched the theme.
The pupils, aged between 11 and 18 years old, were later tasked with creating a picture using the theme of fire.
Religious Education teacher Anne Krisman said: "The theme of fire immediately connected with the children. Our sixth form's photography work on God's Creations was very beautiful. The idea of the good and bad path produced some deep responses. We were all touched by the uplifting work inspired by the exhibition at the Brunei Gallery."
