Wanting to explore pieces of historical Persia may seem unattainable especially since we are living so far away from that land. But did you know that there are historical Persian artifacts at the Oriental Institute right here in the beautiful city of Chicago? Currently these artifacts are not being showcased in part due to a renovation that is being taken place. However, the team at Chicago Nowruz Parade (CNP) has spent some time bringing you some of the monumental collections on video and will be releasing this exciting project featuring three specific artifacts complements to the prehistoric and Achaemenid materials just in time for Nowruz. Stay tuned for this unique glimpse into ancient Persia.
As one of the exciting projects of 2012, the Chicago Nowruz Parade (CNP) is featuring three of the Persian historical artifacts currently being stored at the Oriental Institute right here in Chicago. Among the treasures large and small that are being stored, CNP has identified three specific Persepolis excavations that served as architectural sculptures discovered and preserved during expeditions. The CNP team finds great pride in bringing to you visual images of these ancient monuments. We hope that you enjoy this experience and share the video clip with your friends around the world.
We hope that when in the area you go and see extremely rare and magnificent archeological treasures on display at the Persian Gallery of the Oriental Institute in the University of Chicago.
