New Logo for ASI

The Scorpion Plaque found in the archaeology site in Jiroft, Kerman Province, central Iran. The objects of this historical region are related to Aratta, a mysterious civilisation mentioned in Sumerian literature which flourished in central Iran between ancient Sumer in Mesopotamia and Harappa in the Indus River Valley more than 4000 years ago. The logo of "the Arachnological Society of Iran" is a mixture of myth, art and history of Iran with now days science.
