Photographer's Note

Another picture from Persepolis. On top of the columns were capitals, consisting of two heads of strong animals like bulls or lions (here eagle). Between the two heads was the place where the wooden beams could rest. This eagle head is also the symbol and logo of the biggest and oldest Iranian airline which is Iran Air (Homa).
At the right you can see The Gate Of All Nations and to the left are columns of Apadana Hall or Audience Hall.
