The winged disc with a man's upper body that is commonly used as a symbol of the Zoroastrian faith, has a long and splendid history in the art and culture of the Middle East. Its symbolism and philosophical meaning is an ancient heritage that extends through three millennia to modern times.

Iranian Symbols

A.The word Faravahar is made up of two parts: “Fara” meaning forward of ahead, and “vahar” meaning pulling, so Farvahar literally means “forward-pulling force”. In ancient Iranian culture, the concept of Farvahar was considered as the invaluable component of human existence because it is an attribute of Ahura mazda’s infinite entity.

It is incorporated in human at birth to guide and lead toward perfection, and after death it unites with its origin or Ahura Mazda as pure and perfect as it was.
