In general, in this period, the art of sculpture and the creation of reliefs on stone served architecture, and these high capitals, in addition to creating the grandeur of the Achaemenid Empire, were also places for the placement of roof beams. The statue is about 17 cm high, weighs less than 1 kg and is made of fiberglass. The Shahriar Statue and Sculpture Workshop created this statue inspired by the role of the roaring lion on the headlines of the Achaemenid period. Sculptures can be of any gender, can be of any size, shape, complex or simple. But each of them definitely has a message for us. They can be mythical heroes whose names we have heard in stories, or they can be simple geometric shapes. They can be the body of a popular poet on a crowded city square, or even a clay bird on a ledge. The statues look like travel. A journey from everyday life to feeling and thinking, to beauty and, most importantly, to the dialogue of different civilizations, cultures and ideas. Sculptures can represent an idea, culture or civilization. A culture and thought that sometimes speaks to man from past centuries.
