This unique t-shirt is hand-drawn, inspired by the original replica of a relief in Persepolis, the capital of the Persian Achaemenid Empire.
The Achaemenid Empire was known for its luxurious palaces and impressive architectural feats. The face relief featured on this t-shirt symbolizes the greatness of Persia to ancient visitors of the King. The relief is a sculptural technique where the artist carves his subject out of a flat, solid background, creating a stunning three-dimensional effect.
The limestone reliefs at Persepolis have been the subject of scientific testing, revealing that they were all painted in their day. Using pigmentation derived from various minerals such as Egyptian blue, azurite, malachite, and cinnabar, the reliefs were decorated in vibrant colours that are sure to have been awe-inspiring to ancient viewers.
Our Ancient Persian Achaemenid Empire Face Relief Golden T-Shirt pays homage to this rich cultural heritage, making it a perfect addition to any wardrobe. With its eye-catching design and quality construction, it is sure to become a favourite item in your collection.
