The Mausoleum of Mir-e-Zobeir, in the village of Sharif Abad in Sirjan, has beautiful decorative embellishments, such as a mihrab, inscriptions, arcades, squinches, and so on. So far, there has not been a full and comprehensive study of this work and the artist who created it. In this study, due to the similarity of the plastering of this building, in terms of structure, motifs and inscriptions, with the plasterings of Imam-Zade Rabieh-Khatun of Oshtarjan, the Kochemmir Mosque of Natanz and the Kermani Mosque in Torbat-e Jam, which is signed by Kermanian artists, we decided to consider their visual features as the basis of our comparative study, while referring to the mihrab that is the work of the Kermanian artists and achieve our goals, including studying the plaster decoration of the Mir-e-Zobeir tomb in Sirjan and also finding the reasons for its assignment to the Kermanian artists. The data was collected based on field studies, such as visiting the buildings under study and taking pictures of them, referring to written sources. The data obtained from study samples was analyzed by comparative historical method. Therefore, due to the common features of the stucco involving the signing of Kermanian artists with the plasterings of the Mirzebir tomb in Sirjan, as in their structure, decorations of the mihrab pendentive and some arcades with a circle form, the tangent form of this circle form in all the pendentives with their peripheral wall, as well as the motifs, like Cathay flowers and leaves with similar surface decorations, and also the inscriptions, like placing a fixed place for installing inscriptions containing the name of the artist and the date of making the mihrab, compaction and detailing of the belt inscriptions, etc., it can be said with certainty that the decorations of this building are also works of Kermanian artists
