Bozorgmehr Persian Historian Bust Statue
Having the statues of the elders of any land, especially Iran, is a sign of our respect and love for the elders of our land, although if we live outside of Iran, because our culture depends on these elders. Sculptures can be of any gender, they can be of any size and shape, complex or simple, but they certainly each have a message for us. They can be mythical heroes whose names we have heard in stories, or they can be simple geometric shapes.
Bozorgmehr Persian Historian
Bozorgmehr-e Bokhtagan, also known as Burzmihr, Dadmihr and Dadburzmihr, was an Iranian sage and dignitary from the Karen family, who served as minister (wuzurg framadār) of the Sasanian king (shah) Kavad I, and the latter’s son and successor Khosrow I (r. 531–579). He also served as the military commander (spahbed) of Khwarasan under Khosrow I and his successor Hormizd IV (r. 579–590). According to Persian and Arabic sources, Bozorgmehr was a man of “exceptional wisdom and sage counsels” and later became a characterisation of the expression. His name appears in several important works in Persian literature, most notably in the Shahnameh (“The Book of Kings”). The historian Arthur Christensen has suggested that Bozorgmehr was the same person as Borzuya, but historigraphical studies of post-Sasanian Persian literature, as well as linguistic analysis show otherwise. However, the word “Borzuya” can sometimes be considered a shortened form of Bozorgmehr.
