LONDON, (CAIS) -- A collection of unique works by ancient Iranian artisans will be assembled from major world museums to be displayed in Iran’s National Museum, reported CHN.


Announcing this, Mohammad-Reza Kargar, curator of the museum, said a gold collection of Oxus treasure, and
Cyrus Cylinder the world's first charter of Human Rights by Cyrus the Great , the founder of Achaemenid dynasty (550 - 333 BCE), will be transferred from Britain to Iran following an exhibition held in Spain called ’The Forgotten Empire: The World of Ancient Persia’.


“At the moment we are trying to borrow outstanding works from world famous museums such as Louver, Hermitage and Metropolitan for display in the Iran National Museum,“ he added.


Kargar stated that such a display would not be possible until the museum’s special hall for temporary fairs becomes operational, adding that the hall which is equipped with standard lighting, temperature and humidity control systems will be established in the northern part of the Islamic relics section.
