The Arts of Royalty in Sasanian Iran

This lecture explores concepts of kingship and their visual expression 

in the arts: Kingship in ancient Iran has a long history that drew 

from the royal arts of Assyria to express empire. Achaemenid kings 

in succession developed these conceptual representations brilliantly, 

contributing to visual expressions of kingship in Sasanian Iran, which in turn 

influenced later expressions of piety and power in the Islamic world and beyond.
