    A 65 year-old Iranian artist has turned his 1,000sqm garden into the country's first open-air museum.

    He focuses his creative energy on using recycled material and turning what was once considered junk into a shared artistic treasure.

    The museum is dedicated to the culture of Iran and blends together the country's history, modern art and environmental appreciation.
