About IBO2018 Logo

The earliest remnants of domesticated goats dating 10,000 years before present are found in Iran.

Some 7000 years ago Man created his first animation to show the struggle of a goat for food. It was an animation of drawing on a pottery vessel found in a civilization called Burnt city (Shahr-e Sookhteh) in Iran. It depicts five images of a goat painted along the sides. This has been claimed to be an example of early animation.



Certainly those who created this artistic vessel did not know that today the goat is the symbol of the 29th International Biology Olympiad.
