Photographer's Note

The lion is the symbol of Iran since @ least 2500 years ago . The shot here shows a paiting on the walls which shows "Fathali Shah Qajar" who is hunting a Persian lion in a hunting field . As I said befor hunting lions in wild nature was a symbol of power in ancient Iran . There is a word about it which says The Akhamaneshian emprors ( 500 B.C. ) had to enter a cage & kill a wild lion with knife to be allowed to wear the empire crown.
