Flying to the Stars

By: Amir H. Abolfath


Region: Middle East

Site: Teimareh - Iran


As another night passes in the valley of Teimareh in central Iran, the Earth rotation make star trails in this long exposure image. The prehistoric rock art in the foreground is a part of Teimareh heritage of over 20,000 engraved petroglyphs, dating back to 4500 to 17000 years ago. The picture here might represent an imaginary winged man which is surprisingly similar to winged man prehistoric figures in other continent. For instance similar figure exists in native American rock arts in Yellowstone National Park of the northern US, on the other side of the planet compared to the location of this image.
