One of the customs of Bakhtiari nomads is to put up a stone lion on top of the tombstone of ever-lasting eminent people of the tribe. Bakhtiari people erect the lion stone which is the symbol of bravery, valor, and characteristics such as skills at hunting and shooting in war as well as horseback riding on top of the gravestone of that group of people. In the Bakhtiari dialect, these statues are called “Bard Shir”. Shahrekord, Iran. June 15, 2021. IRNA/ Maryam Almomen
