Reza Khan boots are the symbol of dictatorship in Iran, @ 1922 he formed a kingdom & called it kingdom of Pahlavi which last 50 years(Reza Shah Pahlavi (also was called Reza Shah the great @ that time)& his son Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi ). The revolution in Iran took power away from his son.
May we learn what these boots are trying to say?
that dictatorship might change things in short period of time(as Reza Shah did with bringing modernity) but it wont change the culture & sprit of the country ... Democracy is the best way ... People changes themselves slowly & they would never return to last point (backward)... what happened in Reza Shah age ...
Hope the day that people of the earth rule the erath :)
hope you like it ...
