The Monumental Reliefs of the Elamite Highlands provides the first comprehensive documentation and study of a corpus of eighteen monumental highland relief sculptures carved into a number of cliff faces and boulders more than 2,500 years ago. They belong to the Elamite civilization and range in date from the seventeenth to the to sixth century BC. The reliefs are dispersed across four different locations in the south and southwest of the Iranian Zagros mountains: the valley of Izeh/Malamir (Xong e Azdhar, Shah Savar, Shekaft e Salman and Kul e Farah), the Ghale Tol plain (Qal e Tul), the Mamasani Fahliyan river region (Kurangun), and the Marvdasht plain (Naqsh e Rustam). Their documentation and analysis offers a entire new body of artistic, socio-cultural, and religious evidence to our understanding of ancient world civilizations.
