Investigating visual iconography of Iranian stamps

Overarching themes are:
1. kings' portraits and Khomeini's picture;
2. Lion and Sun symbol and Allah icon;
3. The naming of the country; international relations;
4. Women's representation—or lack thereof;
5. Persian civilization and cultural heritage;
6. Modernization and urban development;
7. Untold histories and neglected events.

Additional animation by Dan Castro.
