Persia: Ancient Iran and the Classical World Exhibition T-Shirt

This t-shirt features a Persian winged lion-griffin from the Achaemenid Empire and accompanies the exhibition Persia: Ancient Iran and the Classical World, on view April 6, 2022 to August 8, 2022 at the Getty Villa.

Ancient Iran, historically known as Persia, was the dominant nation of western Asia for over a millennium (about 550 BC-AD 650), with three native dynasties controlling an empire of unprecedented size and complexity. This exhibition, part of the Getty Museum's program The Classical World in Context, explores the artistic and cultural connections between the rival powers of Iran, Greece, and Rome. Works on view include royal sculpture, spectacular luxury objects, religious images, and historical documents assembled from major museums in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.
