TEHRAN – Up to 130 historical objects from the Paleolithic to Seljuk periods were unveiled at the National Museum of Iran for the first time.
Among all, a 12,000-year-old necklace decorated with wolf teeth stands out next to 2,500-year-old gold ornaments.
An exhibition titled “A selection of the findings of Iranian archaeological research in 2021” was inaugurated on February 26 and will continue until April 22, 2023.
Among these works, a clay mug with an image of a fox and a cow’s head, belonging to the Old Elamite period and dating from around 1600 to 1900 BC, is one of the most prominent works on display.
The most important works have been discovered in Hirbodan Darab in Fars Province.
The Parthian period includes a large part of the works of this exhibition, which according to archaeologists, considering the limited number of works remaining from this period, is considered the strong and important point of this exhibition.
In addition, gold ornaments of about 2,500 years old and a Parthian scissor obtained from “Namin Qara Hasanlu Hill” in Ardabil have been exhibited for the first time.
