Persian Achaemenid Rhyton – Lion
Having the statues & Symbols 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.
One of the symbols of power in ancient Iran is the “Rayton” or golden cups, which were made in the shape of various animals. In ancient Iran, each animal was a symbol of a concept, and animal forms are widely seen in remnants of pre-Islamic Iran. The ancients believed that in the past, when a person drank something from these retons, the animal felt a sense of power and caused him to dominate and grow.
