An ancient Luristan large pottery bowl with two lugs on one side.

Ca. 1500-1000 BC.

Luristan objects, including impressive and numerous decorative bronze horse trappings and weapons, are found mainly in western Persia. Luristan artifacts are most likely the work of the ancient Medes, an Indo-European group that eventually dominated Persia.
