Luristan Small Pottery Jar
An ancient Luristan small pottery jar with an everted rim.
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.
