Luristan bronze comes from the province of Lorestan, a region situated in the area of modern South-Western Iran. In ancient times a number of nomadic populations, such as the Medes, the Kassites and eventually the Persians, settled in the area. Due to the nomadic nature of the tribes, none of the Luristan bronzes were of great size, since they needed to be light and portable. Luristan artwork mainly comprises ornaments, vessels and weapons. Most Luristan bronze items have been recovered in funerary contexts.
