Pasargad: Tomb of Cyrus The Great by IRCSS Pasargad: Tomb of Cyrus The Great by IRCSS

Pasargad, one of the four capitals of the ancient Persian Empire was the resting place of Cyrus The Great, the first emperor recorded in the history of mankind and the founder of the the Persian Empire. I was planning to finish the painting and post it right after the Iranian presidential election as a declaration, however it took longer than expected. In the light of a new government I hope the government and the people will take a better care of these national treasures and perhaps open the borders for foreign tourists to come and enjoy these relics of the past for generations to come. People come and go and economical problems can be solved however the monuments of the past which are important parts of the culture can never be replaced if destroyed. Though the tomb of Cyrus the Great still stands proud, much of the natural and historical attraction sites have been destroyed in the past 8 years due to the rather well planned effort of president Ahmadi Nejad's government to wipe out any monument belonging to the pre-Islamic culture in the country and neglecting the natural sites. If nothing is done these sites will be destroyed and as places registered in the UN as world treasures it is the duty of any government to preserve the sites within Iran and prepare for people from all nationalities to come and visit them. To fellow Iranians let's all put our best effort for the preservation of what is an important part of our identity and an important part of the history of man kind.

The height of the tomb has been exaggerated by around 1 meter and a half however otherwise the painting is accurate. The design of the palace and the color scheme is the result of hours of research into Pasargad and other palaces like Apadana, Persepolis and ...

مقبره ی کورش بزرگ.

تصمیم داشتم که نقاشی را هم زمان با اتمام انتخابات تمام کنم، به عنوان یک پیام برای دولت جدید، اما برنامه ام یک ذره بهم ریخت. امیدوارم که در چهار سال آینده هم دولت آقای روحانی و هم مردم ایران روش مراقبت از مکان های تاریخی و طبیعی را بهبود ببحشند، چرا که اگر این مکان ها نابود شوند قابل جایگزینی نخواهند بود.

لطفآ بدون اجازه از نقاشی استفاده نکنید.

This is beautifully done. As a Zoroastrian living in the USA, I am sad that I can't really go to visit the holy sites of my own faith. I can only imagine this is what his tomb looked like during the Height of the Achaemenid Empire.

beautiful! If any place deserves the name "world treasure" it is surely the tomb of Cyrus.  The tomb of the man who dreamed that the peoples of the world could all work together in peace.

gogitaFroggies1 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2014  Student Digital Artist
This is so amazing, I am not quite sure what to say about it, other than the detail is amazing, and the scale of the piece is almost impossible when I consider that you held this entire thing in your head at some point before releasing it onto your canvas.
IRCSS Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In that aspect painting is like going to the toilet. You feel relieved after it's done because you jusst got rid of a heavy load on you (sorry for the vugular simile :D )  
gogitaFroggies1 Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I think its great, thanks for putting the experience into something relate-able. I am kind of working on something on this big scale too, and I totally get it.
