The making of statues and figures of animals and myths has been common in ancient Iran, as elsewhere in the world at that time. The ancient Iranians made these statues with materials such as stone, baked flowers, bone, wood, metal, and so on. According to the artifacts discovered in different parts of Iran, the connection between art and life has been very clear. Most of these statues were found inside graves and probably had a ritual aspect. The people of that time undoubtedly believed in the afterlife and believed that by building such statues, their fertility and wealth would increase. The height of the statue of the Mother Goddess is about 17 cm, it weighs more than 500 grams and is made of fiberglass. This sculpture was made in the workshop “Statue and Sculpture of Shahriar”. 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.
