Iran Four Scientists Sculptures in United Nation Vienna

There is an old famous saying, “Art rests with Iranians only.” Over the past centuries, it was the Persians who showed the world the way in various artistic skills. The history of Iran is also replete with names of eminent scholars in different fields of science, renowned for their major contributions to scientific development.

The world has come to know them through the books they left behind as well as the works of art. There are many drawings and statues of Iranian scholars all over the world and traces of Iranians can be seen.  we intend to introduce one of the most attractive and famous memorials of Iranian scientists in the world so that maybe their names and memories will be revived.

This beautiful work is called the Persian Scholars Pavilion, which is located in front of the United Nations office in Vienna. The Persian Scholars Pavilion at United Nations in Vienna, Austria featuring the statues of four prominent Iranian figures. Highlighting the Iranian architectural features, the pavilion is adorned with Persian art forms and includes the statues of Avicenna, Abu Rayhan Birouni, Zakariya Razi (Rhazes), and Omar Khayyam.

Each of these scientists looks to the one corner of the world, which tells of the spread of their knowledge to the four corners of the world. The material of this pavilion is made of marble and is made in the style of Islamic-Achaemenid architecture, of course, there are signs of other types and styles of it.

This beautiful arch was built in Iran and was donated to Vienna by the government of our country in 2009 as a symbol of peace, and is now located to the right of the entrance to the United Nations building in Vienna.

Now that we are familiar with the memorial of these great scientists, stay with us to take a brief look at the characteristics of these great scientists of the world.
