In this scene, the Sassanid king stands in the center of the lithograph, holding a sword with his left hand and holding a ribbon ring from Ahura Mazda with his right hand. Zarathustra or Mitra is with a halo of light on the left and behind the king.

نقش برجسته اسب سوار زره پوش Mohammad Ali Mirza relief (Qajar lithograph)

One of the most unfortunate events for this valuable collection is the relief engraving that was done in the 19th century during the Qajar period by Mohammad Ali Mirza. This engraving caused a lot of damage to this unique work of Iran.

These worthless and uncoordinated images show Mohammad Ali Mirza, the son of Fath Ali Shah Qajar and his sons, and also in front of him in Aghaghani’s images, the king’s eunuch. These are the pictures that Naser al-Din Shah writes about in his travelogue:

“At the top of this page, Aghaghani, the eunuch of the late Mohammad Ali Mirzai, who was from Gilan, sat down to bother to draw the face of the late prince and carved Heshmat al-Dawla, his son and younger son. Aghaghni himself has been portrayed standing in front of the prince with a disgusting delegation. It has fallen on him in such a way that he is really scared and he has damaged the arch and they have painted the badly carved baskets on the shapes. “Truth has been squandered.”

Kermanshah Bostan Arch, in addition to the antiquities left over from the Sassanid period, is also famous for its millennial water springs. These springs were drinkable water during the Sassanid era as a source of water for agricultural farms as well as drinking water.

Visiting the Bostan arch, you will see the water stream that flows in front of this work, and if you pay attention, the small springs of water in this stream are clear. Clear and cool water that even in summer, due to the cold water can not hold your hand for more than a few moments.
