Problem statement: The Sogadian civilization was on the Silk Road route and was one of the most significant areas of the Silk Road. This geographical location resulted in significant cultural intertwining in the art and culture of the area. The influence of Indian, East Asian and Iranian culture on art are visible. But in the meantime, the influence of Sassanian from Iran may be stronger as the Sogadians received the most influence from the Sassanian in their art. But in this impression, they merely confined themselves to the representation of the Visual Elements of Sasanian art and did not reflect the spirit of royal art in their works. This is especially evident in the Sogadian murals.
Research question: What are the reasons for the unique representation of the Visual Elements of Sasanian art and not to reflect the spirit of royal in Sogadian art murals?
Research objective: Identifying the reasonsfor Sogdian selective influence on some specific aspects of Sassanid art, is the main objective of the present study.
Research method: This research is a qualitative one and it is conducted in historical methods as well as the descriptive-analytical study and the required data was collected through a library method.
Conclusion: Sogadian society provided the opportunity for growth for all individuals within the context of the social and political structure of developed urbanization. Due to having such a structure, the money made by being located on the Silk Road route provided considerable prosperity to the people of the area and besides the king, other rich people were formed in the hearts of the population. The same story flourished with epic, mythical, everyday themes, and in Sogadian murals depicting stories that all Sogadian people could be heroes, rather than the central persona and the king’s display of absolute power.
