This is the first and, at the time of its uploading, the only video on the net featuring this rock-relief. The depicted man is "Tar...dunni", son of Ikki. He was a regional king, prince, ruler, or high-ranking official, circa 2100-2000 BCE. The relief lies on the cliff of Darband-i Belula, Horen Shexan mountain, Sulaymaniyah Governorate, near the Iraq-Iran Border, Iraqi Kurdistan.

Special thanks go to my friends Dr. Delman Attar, Alan Omar, and Nasr for their kind help.
