During the observation of Iranian art and its civilization, it is possible to find a lesser period that was as impressive as the Sassanid art of the art of the contemporary civilizations and, more importantly, beyond itself. metalworking is one of the most prominent Sassanian arts that has made itself in the manufacture of all types of metal works, especially silverware. Artists of this age, using the techniques of making, decorating and reflecting many old Iranian beliefs and traditions in metal works, have preserved the identity, artistic values and experiences of the past, and transmitted and continued it to the Islamic era. the artistic work of the Islamic era and the geography of Iranian civilization, especially during the rule of the Seljuk Empire, expanded rapidly in the light of security and tranquility, and outstanding metallurgical schools appeared in the production of metal works such as Khorasan and Mosul. artists active in these two schools, while paying attention to and modeling the Sassanian art of art in technical and artistic dimensions, were able to with their innate innovations, ingenuity and creativity, as well as the attention to common religious beliefs in some sciences such as astronomy and astrology, the nature They created a new artistic dimension for this art. the mentioned schools, especially Khorasan, were very dynamic and thriving during the Seljuk period. In addition to the influence of Sassanid art, there were significant effects, especially in decorative styles, on visual effects and roles on the metal works of Mosul. in fact, Mosul was directly (neighboring the Sassanid-Madan capital - and included in the Sassanid civilization) and indirect (the modeling and influence of the metal art of Khorasan through the interactions and the migration of artists from Khorasan, especially the artists of Herat to Mosul in the direction Mongol invasion) has benefited from Sasanian art and this is evident in Mosul’s works. The purpose of this research is to identify the dimensions of the influence of the Sassanian metalwork art on Mosul’s metalwork, its introduction and documentation in order to protect and protect an important part of Iranian art and civilization. what are the motifs and concepts used in the Mosul metal works affected by the Sassanian metalwork art? the topics discussed in this article are as follows: The influence of the Sassanian metalwork art on the art of metalworking of the Islamic period, the impact of the Mosul metal school on the metalwork of Khorasan [Herat], and the impact on other metalworking schools, the general coordinates of the Sassanid metal works of Khorasan and Mosul, decorative practices and content (Patterns and roles mapped from Sassanid art and specific themes and roles of Mosul) Mosul metal works.

The most important result of this research is the introduction and reflection of the concepts and motifs of Sassanid metal works in the metal works of the Mosul metalwork school. Hence, the metalworkers have been instrumental in aesthetic and technological aspects of the methods of making, decorating and paying the art of Sassanid metalworkers through the metalwork school of Khorasan during the Seljuk period.
