Abstract:   (2042 Views)
“Animal drawing in row” has been important and a widely-used style in Mesopotamia, as well as in Persia which is mainly depicted on pottery and metals. This style is also depicted on Greek pottery. The question is: How did “animal drawing in row” affect Greek pottery art. In terms of mythological stories and mythical creatures, this style is close to Greek traditions therefore it had been warmly welcomed and applied by Greek artists. These effects could have also occurred due to enormous trade between Greece and its colonies on the one hand and Syrian, Phoenician, Mesopotamian and Persian civilizations on the other. The purpose of this study is to compare this method in some of Iranian pottery discovered from Marlik, Hasanlu, Elamite and Achaemenid civilization, to Greek pottery. The research method is descriptive-comparative. On pottery and metal vessels, this technique starts with single drawing row, and ends with multi rows. The number of rows in most cases depended on the size and the surface of vessel or pot.
