This virtual reconstruction, realized by two German architects, Kourosh Afhami and Wolfgang Gambke, is based on the documentation obtained from the archaeological excavations at the site, especially from the work of the architect Friedrich Krefter, who produced a wealth of reconstruction drawings and two scale models of the great terraces of the Achaemenid palaces, including the great entrance vestibules and interiors. The present reconstruction makes it possible to see LACMA's two fragments in their original context, decorating the outer face of the monumental staircases at Persepolis.

This video was made possible by funds provided by the Farhang Foundation, the Art of the Middle East Council, and Karl Loring.
