Exclusive to the British Museum, a hand-painted resin replica of the Cyrus Cylinder.

The Cyrus Cylinder is often referred to as the first bill of human rights, as the inscribed text appears to encourage freedom of worship throughout the Persian Empire and allows deported people to return to their homelands. It was inscribed in Babylonian cuneiform (the earliest form of writing) on the orders of the Persian King Cyrus the Great (559–530 BC) after he captured Babylon in 539 BC.

The Cyrus Cylinder was rediscovered in modern-day Iraq in 1879 during a British Museum excavation and has been on display ever since.

This replica has been made from a cast of the original object, and hand painted by UK-based sculptor Andrew Lilley. It is presented in a custom cherry wood box with brass detailing.

As this piece is hand-sculpted please allow four weeks for delivery.
