Persepolis Head

Day 335 - December 1, 2011 - Persepolis Head

In the ruins of Persepolis there are bas-relief carvings showing delegates of the 23 subject nations of the Persian Empire paying tribute to Darius I. When Cathy's family lived in Iran, a man stayed with them who (with permission) took casts of the heads of many of the carvings. This is a reproduction made from a set that he made for Cathy's parents. Along with seven others, it was made for us by Cathy's brother, David.
