Iran, Persepolis, Figure On Wings, 1984

Iran, Perspolis, Figure On Wings, 1984 - Perspolis, in southern Iran, was one of the more interesting ruins I have visited. The stone reliefs were excellent. This motif of a man sitting in a circle in wing, holding a similar circle in his hand, was memorable. It is known as the Faravahar, a symbols of Zoroastrianism. Zoroaster's teachings influenced Christianity, Islam and Judaism.
