 13th-century Painted Tablet Unearthed in Nowshahr

 

04 October 2005

A painted tablet dating back to the thirteen century has been unearthed at the mausoleum of Mir-Salehani in the township of Kajour in the vicinity of Nowshahr.

A specialist on tablets from the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department of Mazandaran province, Sa'id Soleimani, said here Tuesday that the tablet which was unearthed in the process of restoration and reconstruction of the mausoleum is characterized with black, azure and green lines.

Soleymani told IRNA that two parrots have been repeated on the tablet in symmetrical shapes.

He added that the evidences show that the painting has been created by an indigenous artist.

The specialist noted that the painting has been drawn around the internal wall of Mir-Salehani Mausoleum.

"Due to lack of any definite date on the tablet, it is likely to have been created concurrent with the construction of the building of the mausoleum.

The mausoleum of Mohammad Kia Soltan known as Mir-Salehani is situated at Salehan village, in the vicinity of the city of Nowshahr in western Mazandaran province.
