this rock-face was supposed to have carried an array of scenes carved into it. but whoever worked on it (it is not actually known), he only managed to carve and smooth the surface, but never got the chance to carve anything into it. It is just a BLANK SCREEN. had it been completed, this would have been the largest sculptured rock-face in the world. but it was not. instead, those who created this extremely massive "screen". it is totally gigantic. like the Grand Canyon, you got to see it in person to understand the scale.

in the process, however, the carvers had destroyed an Elamite rock carving, the pieced of which are found in the rubble below (seen in the photo here)....
