Images of Ancient Iran

The Most Comprehensive Image Library of the Ancient Iranian Art & Archeology on the Web


 

This section of CAIS website is constantly being updated,

please check back time to time for updates to this section.

 

CAIS Image Library is an ongoing project of collecting digital images and multimedia files representing art from the ancient Iranian World (pre-history untill the fall of the Sasanian dynasty in 651 CE). This in turn will highlight and place emphasis upon rich Iranian culture.

 

These images will be used for non-commercial purposes only (no fee is charged to viewers). Therefore, they should be viewed at your own perusal or for academic and personal purposes only.

 

CAIS Image Library was set up with the aim of generating images that would equip students and scholars alike of the vast art collections that exists today. Therefore, CAIS would be grateful for contributions of images currently in viewer’s possessions. [ Click Here ] for more information.
