LONDON, (CAIS) -- Sasanid plaster works being kept at Iran National Museum will be displayed on the occasion of National Cultural Heritage Week.


The plaster works which were brought from Haji Abad and Yazdgerd Fortress were due to go on public display earlier this year but the event was delayed because it coincided with the anniversary of the 1979 revolt.


Curator of Iran National Museum Mohammad Reza Kargar said that exhibit of plaster works will be held on the second floor of the museum. He said that they are placed in the category of architecture heritage adding that several pieces of sculpture are also included in the collection.


He said that some of the plaster works which were large and heavy needed to be repaired ahead of the exhibit.


The collection is being displayed for the first time, he noted.
Kargar recalled that plaster works in Iran reached its peak during the Arsacid and Sasanid dynastic periods.
