As I mentioned in the previous post in this series, some of the pictures I took on my last trip to Iran served as both reference and inspiration for artist Brent Bowman while creating our Persia Blues graphic novel. Here’s a set taken at the Military Museum, on the former grounds of the Shah’s palaces, all of which now serve as museums.

We’ll start with a couple of examples of historical military uniforms, I believe from the Achaemenid period:

And some banners and iconography, including the Standard of Cyrus the Great (the blue square banner in the back):

And of course ancient weapons, including swords, battle axes, spears, maces, and clubs:

Next: more pictures from the Nation Palace Museum, Green Museum, and others.
