Pottery is as the most abundant material data in the archaeology. Archaeologists have studied pottery from a different point of view, such as typology, stratigraphic situation and relevance, but less attention has been paid to pottery figures. Elements of aesthetical and harmonic such as repetition, symmetry, balance, proportion, concentration and etc are frequently seen on the prehistoric potteries of Iran and implicate this important point that human being, in addition to applied aspect of pottery in the routine life, created different figures such as geometric, human, vegetal, animal, thematic and symbolic, and thus has satisfied his aesthetical needs.

The Neolithic period is the beginning of painting on the pottery, most of which are geometric patterns, but in the chalcolithic period, we can see the development, evolution and progress of the painting on of the pottery, and the types of motifs are beautifully observed on the potteries of various areas of this period in Iran. In this research, in addition to look after visual and aesthetical aspects of figures on the prehistoric potteries of Iran, the relation between kind of aesthetical elements, kind of figures on the potteries and application of these elements has been studied. Research findings show that application of aesthetical elements along with mathematics concurrent , development of prehistory societies and social evolution of homo in the chalcolithic period turned to be complicated and these elements have been created with more beauty and delicacy whose appearance is the use of thematic , symbolic figures and application of these elements, as best as possible.
