Luristan bronze comes from the province of Lorestan, a geographic and historic region of western Iran that is situated within the Zagros Mountains. The region has been settled. By a number of people such as the Medes, the Kassites, and Persians. These bronze objects probably date back to roughly 1000 – 650 BC. Due to the nomadic nature of the tribe none of the bronze works were of great size, since they required to be light and easily portable. Rather majority of the Luristan Bronze were discovered in funerary contexts.
