Takht Jamshid

Surely, this is not my photo. It was from a card postal of Takht Jamshid, the greates Persian (Iranian) acient monument in the time when Persia was the greatest empire of all times. I've taken a photo from it with my Sony digi-cam years ago.
The British Museum has started an exhibition about Iranian ancient empirer, "The Forgotton Empire", through Jan. 2006. I encourage you to visit the facinating exhibition if you are in London. The sculpture figures in the photo is the same figures that the museum chosen for main page of its website. The website captions the figure with this note "Line drawing of plaster casts of the stone reliefs on the western façade of the west staircase of the Palace of Darius (tachara) at Persepolis."
From British Museum website:
The greatest Empire on the face of the earth.
United by the greatest Kings.
3,000,000 square miles.
From North Africa to Indus Valley
