Wheels of history Collection

The collection is dedicated to the regions of Azerbaijan. It exhibits the beauty of every corner of the country, reflecting the cultural riches and diversity of all different areas of Azerbaijan.

This model was inspired by patterns engraved on earthenware found during excavations near Shamkir, dating back to the 15th century BC.

The city, which was known as far back as the 5th century AD, was a trade and craftsmanship centre of ancient Arran area, part of current Azerbaijan. The city was ruined a number of times and its name was changed, but after regaining independence, the Azerbaijani government restored the city’s historic name. The examples of craftsmanship found in Shamkir convey a clear picture of the culture, daily life and world-view of the ancient people who lived in Azerbaijani territory.

It is assumed that these finds reflect special ceremonies or religious rituals: deer antlers depicted on the finds signify power, while a swastika connotes the sun, a wheel suggests infinity, and spiral lines are a sign of eternity, of time and immortality.
