    The tomb of Cyrus the Great, built c550 BC is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world's first example of a base isolated structure. During an earthquake, when the earth moves, the base foundation moves, and the upper part glides freely on its base. He was the founder of the Achaemenid Empire, the largest empire the world had yet seen. His famous proclamation, inscribed onto Cyrus Cylinder, is said to be the oldest known declaration of human rights. The use of the lens flare was deliberate.
