“Sasanid Allurer” Entices Documentarian

 

27 May 2006

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Iranian filmmaker Mehdi Baqeri finished the making of “The Sasanid Allurer”, a documentary studying the history of chang (harp) in ancient Iran and Greco-Roman.

 

The documentary studies the instrument due to the information available on pictorial bas-reliefs in Taq-e Bostan, a Sasanid monument in Kermanshah , and Kul-Farah.

 

The film also surveys how the Iranian instrument was flourished in the Europe during the 12th century.

 

Harp is a string instrument, which developed in Iran in many forms from its introduction about 3000 BCE until the 17th century. 

 

The original type was the arched harp as seen at Chogha Mish in Susian plain in Khuzestan Province and several other sites.

 

Large bas-reliefs at Kul-Farah, an Elamite site in Izeh, Khuzestan Province , show ensembles of vertical and horizontal harps, which are as large as Mesopotamian ones.

 

Taq-e Bostan has bas-reliefs depicting a number of women playing harp while Sasanid king of kings is hunting.
