Praise of Life as a Zoroastrians Belief Depicted
Neda Akhavan Aghdam
Abstract:   (9229 Views)
One of the most important eras in the Pre-Islamic Iran is Sasanian, so in the art history studies their artistic works should be taken into account with subtlety. Metalwork could be considered as one of the most important artistic branches in this era. The Sasanian metalwork could be divided on the basis of the form of vessels or the scenes depicted on them. This research is focused on the metal vesels with the images of “dancing girls”, “musicians”, and “the scenes of festivals”. So far the 5 scholars have interpreted these images with different approaches and manners but this article would undertake to study the vessels and their depicted images from another view with descriptive and analytic approach. Although we could never reach a definite interpretation of the ancient artistic works, the present research aims to introduce another idea about these vessels for further studies.
Keywords: Sasanian art, Sasanian metalwork, images on Sasanian vessels
