This is a hand-drawn exact replica of the Surena statue one of the main surviving works of Parthian art.
The main design is of a Parthian prince, who bears a short beard and a heavy mustache, while his hair is long and covers the ears, the figure is believed to be general Surena, the hero of the battle of Carrhae.
Surena’s victory at Carrhae against the Roman republic and his personal “feat of arms was certainly the most celebrated of the whole Arsacid era” (Parthian), it’s among the biggest military defeats suffered by the Romans.
The Roman defeat won unquestioned recognition for Persia (Iranshahr) as a military superpower, for Rome it changed everything, soon after Julius Caesar and Pompey went into a long civil war that changed the course of human history.
Surena’s name is therefore preserved amongst the throng of epic heroes whose deeds are recalled in the Kianian of the Shahnameh. (Book of Kings)
