Mr. Akam (a sculptor who still works at the Sulaymaniyah Museum) and Mr. Qadir (died last year in 2017, rest in peace) are doing the moulds of the replica of the façade of the rock-cut tombs of Ashkawt-i Qizqapan (Kurdish: The Cave of the Ravisher or the Cave of the Raped/Abducted Girl). This photo dates back to late October 2002. Median-Achaemenid Period, 600-330 BCE. It lies near Zarzi village and the Palaeolithic cave of Zarzi, Chemi Rezan Valley, Sulaymaniyah Governorate, Iraqi Kurdistan.
