Third Floor/Pre Islamic Gallery

The Pre-Islamic Gallery

The objects preserved in this Gallery are from the 2nd millenium BC to the end of the Sassanid Dynasty (i.e. 651 AD). The pottery and metal objects that show simple and pleasant shapes with decorations often derived from nature and each are from various sites such as Azerbaijan, Susa or Lorestan. The discovery and usage of materials, advances in knowledge and technology have created objects that facilitated victory over the nature. During the Median and Achaemenian periods and the subsequent ers, humanity gained such a level of skill that could think about beauty and perfection and was able to create different objects. The silver objects with gold decorations from the Sassanid period, which bring this Gallery to a conclusion, reflect this advancement.
