Speech on Sassanid Metalwork

The Iranian Academy of Arts, affiliated to the presidential office, holds today a one-day training workshop on ‘Semiotics in Sassanid Metalwork.’
The academy’s research wing hosts a workshop where scholar, historian, philologist and semiotician Neda Akhavan Aqdam will speak on the meaning behind some signs, motifs and icons recurrent in the metalwork of the Sassanid era (224-651 AD).
Akhavan Aqdam, 46, has expertise in history of art. She has recently released a book ‘A Semiological Review on Sassanid Metal Ware’ published by the research department of the academy. ‘Creation Myth in Zoroastrianism,’ released in 2010, is among her earlier books.
The workshop is organized under the auspices of the Committee for Pre-Islamic Art of Iran, one of the groups affiliated to the academy.
Open to the public, ‘Semiotics in Sassanid Metalwork’ opens at 3 pm for four hours. The workshop is held at the premises of the research department located at No. 29, Valiasr Avenue, on the corner of Hassan Sokhanvar Alley, north of Imam Khomeini Street.
