Diagrams: Great Cyrus Tomb


Click on picture for diagrams.

Reza Sarvi, an Iranian from Shiraz, is presenting here another of his historic models; this time it is a recreation of an archaeological site.

His model is inspired by the Tomb of Cyrus. The tomb is in Pasargadae, located near Shiraz. Cyrus was a great king of ancient Persia, known as the author of the first human rights cylinder in the world.

The tomb was made in 529 BC. The dimensions of the model follow the proportion of the real tomb. Once again, the joy of origami has no boundaries, in space or time!
