Bazaari is the name given to the merchant class and workers of bazaars, the traditional marketplaces of Iran. They have traditionally played a key role in spreading the Islamic culture and have been described as the social class that helped make the 1979 Iranian Revolution.
Today, bazars are in some stage of transition between the world of A Thousand and One Nights and that of the suburban shopping mall. Its mannequins have become mysterious inhabitants that witnesses this change of mentality. While some of them reflect the strict moral codes imposed by the theocratic regime, others show the slow transformation of a learned and modern society that looks into the West in search of new aesthetic references.
