Ramona means “manifestation of love” and “guardian of wise”. Saadi created the artwork title Ramona in the form of a vase and describes the vase as a human soul.
Saadi was influenced by Shirazi’s below- mentioned poetry in Ramona:

Since all, at first, from the same essence came.

When time afflicts a limb with pain The other limbs at rest cannot remain.


On the exterior of the artwork, the translations of the poem of Shirazi into Turkish, English, Chinese and French are written as well as the original Persian version of the poem takes part.
Based on Shirazi’s poem, Saadi used the color blue which means peace and the color gold which represents wealth on the exterior of the work. However, the wealth represented by the color gold is not monetary wealth. The color of gold indicates that one can achieve spiritual wealth if one can live in accordance with the poem of Shirazi. For this reason, Saadi symbolizes a peaceful life with happy people, flying birds on the exterior of the work based on Shirazi’s poem.
On the upper part of the inner side of the vase, there are leaves and flowers shaped as a crown and designed with modern illumination. At the inner central point of the vase, there seems a sphere, which, according to Ahad’s thought, represents the earth, our world. Five guardian angels surround this world. On the inner walls, five guardian angels are depicted with the cosmos and the phoenix. Saadi explains that the guardian angels are represented by the number five as he wants to reflect the five elements based on the philosophy of Feng Shui. Each guardian angel is representative of an element.

Since Saadi describes the vase as a human spirit, he connects the survival of the human to these five elements of Feng Shui philosophy. The sphere at the inner central point of the vase is considered to be the heart. The five guardian angels are the protectors of the globe, the heart, and represent the five elements that keep the vase, that is, the human being standing.
