Abstract: Painted containers have a long history in Iranian art. In reviewing pottery motifs, human and animal motifs are considerable. The drawn motifs of the pottery indicate several moves from a human or animal character, sequence of which cause the viewer to see different forms of motion in a visual plan. This study was based on the theory, in which the designers of these motifs besides paying attention to the beauty of the pottery drawings, have tried to create motion elements of a character in a visual medium and different states; moreover, the theory was aimed to answer these questions: which sense of motion had Iran's artists in visual recording and repeating human animal motifs on pottery? What was the purpose of accomplishing it? Understanding these historical motifs, and determining their direction, can become a rich and supportive resource in Iranian contemporary art - especially animation.
