Discovering the land of our origin

It all began with a vision to neutralize the relations between Azerbaijan and Norway by making both countries aware of the cultural values.
It is known that Thor Heyerdahl (1914-2002) a world-renowned explorer and archaeologist was convinced that there might be connective links between the Caucasus and Scandinavia. He elaborated on these ideas in his book Ingen grenser, Norwegian for No Borders, published by J.M. Stenersens Forlag in Oslo in 1999. In his research he claimed that the Scandinavian God Odin was actually a historical figure who had originated from the Caucasus and then migrated with a large number of his people to Scandinavia and that Scandinavians are the descendants of the people who once lived in the region now known as Azerbaijan.
This vision led to this project called Discovering – The Land of our origin by CANs chairman & internationally known fashion designer Shervin Najafpour.
The goal is to achieve a balanced, democratic, intellectual discussion by building stronger bridges, cultural understanding and friendship between the two nations.
