MEANING OF DESIGNS

The work of making tapestries is an act of worship.  Every design represents an allegory with a long-standing historical significance.  Zoroastrianism, probably the world’s oldest monotheistic religion, is the basis of most of the traditional Persian designs.  The process of creation, the harmony and rhythms of world, and respect for nature and social diversity are all ubiquitous.  Some of the most pervasive examples are as follows. 

 1.  The process of culling the raw materials from the earth and mixing them together represents the natural elements coming together, bringing the artist closer to god by imitating the original creation.

 2. The number 4 represents both the seasons and the classical elements of nature: earth, water, air and fire, with love in the center, represented by the medallion of god.

 3.  The Zoroastrian god, Mazda, holds in his hands the ring of intellect which elevates the status of humanity above the animals and unites us with him.  He flies with wings having three layers of feathers, representing good thoughts, good deeds and good speech, with his tail-feathers representing the negative counterparts.

4. The paisley combines three symbols: a womb, a child in the arm of her mother, and the peacock feather in the crown of the emperor.  Thus, the paisley represents both nurturing and authority, primary qualities of divinity.

Farvahar   Zoroaster and Farvahar

The Farvahar (فروهر), or Farohar, is to remind one of the purpose of life on this earth, which is to live in such a way that the soul progresses spiritually and attains union with Ahura-Mazda (the Wise Lord); this state is called Frasho-kereti in Avesta. In the center of the figure is a circle which represents the soul of the individual. For the soul to evolve and progress, it has two wings. In each wing there are five layers of feathers. These remind one of the five jzhirums with which the soul is linked. To achieve the ultimate goal of reaching Ahura-Mazda, the soul has to pass through all the jzhirums. The five layers can also represent the five Divine Songs (Gathas) of Zarathustra, the five divisions of the day (Gehs), and the five senses of the human body. In nature, there exist two opposing forces: Spenta-Mainyu the good mind or assar-i roshni and Angre-Mainyu the wicked mind or assar-i tariki. A continuous conflict goes on in nature between these two. A person's soul is caught between the two and is pulled by each from side to side. The two long curved legs on either side of the circle represent these two forces. To help the soul balance itself between these two forces, the soul is given a rudder in the form of a tail. This tail has three layers of feathers, which reminds one of the path of Asha Humata (Good Thoughts), Hukhta (Good Words), and Hvarasta (Good Deeds), or Manashni, Gavashni, and Kunashni by which the soul is able to make its own spiritual progress. The head of the figure reminds us that Ahura-Mazda has given every soul a free will to choose either to obey divine universal natural laws or to disobey them. The figure also has a pair of hands which hold a circular ring. The ring symbolizes the cycles of rebirths on this earth and other planes which the soul has to undergo to make progress on the path of Asha. If these divine laws are obeyed through Manashni, Gavashni, and Kunashni, our soul will be able to attain union with Ahura-Mazda. This far-off event, towards which the whole of creation moves, is called Frasho-kereti.

Ahura Mazda (/əhˌʊrəmˈæzdə/;[1]), (also known as Athura Mazda, Athuramazda, Ohrmazd, Ahuramazda, Hourmazd, Hormazd, Hurmuz, and Azzandara) is the Avestan name for a divinity of the Old Persian religion who was proclaimed the uncreated God by Zoroaster, the founder of Zoroastrianism. Ahura Mazda is described as the highest deity of worship in Zoroastrianism, along with being the first and most frequently invoked deity in the Yasna. The word Ahura means light andMazda means wisdom. Thus Ahura Mazda is the lord of light and wisdom. Ahura Mazda is the creator and upholder of Arta (truth). Ahura Mazda is an omniscient andomnipotent god, who created a being called Angra Mainyu, the "evil spirit" who as the creator of evil will be destroyed according to the frashokereti (the destruction of evil).

Ahura Mazda first appeared in the Achaemenid period (c. 550 – 330 BCE) under Darius I's Behistun Inscription. Until Artaxerxes II (405-04 to 359-58 BCE), Ahura Mazda was worshiped and invoked alone. With Artaxerxes II, Ahura Mazda was invoked in a triad, with Mithra and Apam Napat. In the Achaemenid period, there are no representations of Ahura Mazda other than the custom for every emperor to have an empty chariot drawn by white horses, to invite Ahura Mazda to accompany the Persian army on battles. Images of Ahura Mazda began in the Parthian period, but were stopped and replaced with stone carved figures in the Sassanid period.

اهورامزدا واژه‌ای ترکیبی است و از اهورا و مزدا تشکیل شده‌است. در گاتاها گاهی اهورامزدا جدا از هم بکار رفته است[۱]. واژه اهورامزدا به گونه‌های «مزدا اهورا» یا «مزدا» ۱۵۵ بار در گات‌هابازگو شده است[۲]. مزدا در بعضی بندهای گاتاها به معنی حافظه و به حافظه سپردن و به یاد داشتن است. این واژه در سانسکریت مَذِس، به معنی دانش و هوش می‌باشد. بنابراین وقتی که مزدا برایخدا به کار برده شده‌است از آن معنی هوشیار و آگاه و دانا برداشت کرده‌اند. اهورا نیز از ریشه /ah/ به چم هستی و بودن سرچشمه گرفته است و اهورا بدین روی به چم هستی بخش است پس اهورامزدا روی‌همرفته به معنیِ هستی بخشِ دانا است. همچنین فردوسی بزرگ در سرآغاز و نخستین بیت شاهنامه٬ با تیزبینی هنرمندانه و ویژه‌ای اهورامزدا را «خداوند جان و خرد» ترجمه کرده است[۲].

به نام خداوند جان و خرد   کزین برتر اندیشه برنگذرد

 

 

اهورامزدا آفریننده جهان است. مزدیسنان اهورا مزدا را می‌پرستند. اهورامزدا خالق و داور همهٔ چیزهای مادی و معنوی و نیز آفریننده روشنی و تاریکی و برقرار کننده نظم هستی (اشا) است[۳]. او با اندیشیدن همه چیز را هستی بخشیده‌است پس در واقع او از عدم می‌آفریند و با خود تنهاست. برای اهورا مزدا در هرمزد یشت، در حدود شصت صفتِ نیک آورده شده و تقریباً همهٔ چیزهای خوب به وی منتسب شده‌است. همچنین او در مزدیسنا دارای شش صفتِ برجسته زیر است:

سپنتَه مَینیو یعنی مقدس‌ترین روان، خشثره ویرنه بگویش امروزی شهریور یعنی شهریار و پادشاهی که باید انتخاب و برگزیده شود، سپنتَه آرمیتی است یعنی پارسایی مقدس. هورتات بگویش امروزیخورداد بمعنی جامعیت و رسایی و امرتات جاودانگی و بی مرگی است. او اشه یعنی راستی و درستی و قانون ایزدی و پاکی است. همچنین وهومَنَه است به معنی خوب منش. این صفات در مزدیسنا به نامِ امشاسپندان خوانده می‌شوند و پایه های کمال در دین زرتشتی است برای رسیدن به روشنایی بی پایان.از این هفت امشاسپندان است که هفت شهر عشق و هفت آسمان و هفت خوان اسفندیار و هفت خوان رستم و هفت سین و هفت کشور و ... برداشت شده است.

Ahura Mazda (persisch ‏اهورا مزدا‎, „der weise Herr“ oder „Herr der Weisheit“, mittelpersisch Ormusd oder Ormus) ist im Zoroastrismus der Schöpfergott, der zuerst die geistige Welt (Menok) und dann die materielle Welt (Geti) erschaffen hat; er verkörpert die Macht des Lichts, ist Schöpfer und Erhalter der Welt und der Menschheit und ist der Gott der Fruchtbarkeit der Lebewesen; in den Keilinschriften der persischen Großkönige Ahuramazda genannt.

Ahura Mazda (Ahura Mazdā) u Ormuz es el nombre en idioma avéstico para una divinidad exaltada por Zoroastro como el Creador no creado, es decir, la deidad suprema del zoroastrismo.

El zoroastrismo es así descrito por sus adeptos como Mazdayasna, la adoración de Mazda. En el Avesta, "Ahura Mazda es el más alto objeto de culto",1 la primera divinidad y la más frecuentemente mencionada en la liturgia Yasna. En la cosmogonía y tradición Zoroástrica, todas las divinidades menores son también creaciones de Mazda (léase Bundahishn III).

Ahura Mazda es 'Auramazdā'2 en Antiguo persa, 'Aramazd' en Parto3 y Armenio (cf. también Aramazd). En medio y nuevo Persa su uso varía, pero 'Hormizd', 'Hormuzd', 'Ohrmazd' y 'Ormazd/Ōrmazd' (اورمزد/ارمزد) son transliteraciones comunes.

Es el dios del cielo, omnisciente y sacerdote celeste, líder de los Amesha Spenta divinidades del Zoroastrismo, creadas por Ahura Mazda para ayudar a regir la creación (los ahura). Es un dios abstracto y trascendente, sin imagen concreta, por lo cual no es representable. Los zorastrianos usan el término atar para referise al fuego y luz que son manifestaciones de Ahura Mazda.

Angra Mainyu es lo opuesto a Ahura Mazda, es la representación del mal, no es un dios ni un ente y ha dado lugar al concepto erróneo que hay Dualismo Cósmico en el Zoroastrianismo. También llamado Ahriman. Representa a los daeva, los de la mala conducta.

Mazda significa sabiduría, es un nombre femenino (como el griego Sofía), Ahura, significa, literalmente, el "Ser Alto" es masculino. Ahura Mazda es omnisciente, abstracto y trascendente, sin imagen concreta, por lo cual no es representable.

All of our tapestries are handmade from 100% natural calico (cotton) and dyes made of pomegranate, henna, pistachios and indigo flowers.  They are all preshrunk and machine-washable in cold water (air dry).  They can be used for decoration on walls, ceilings, doorways and furniture—as blankets, dust-ruffles, pillowcases, napkins or curtains!   All of our bags and shirts are made from these tapestries, folded and stitched; and all of the above are of authentic Persian design, made

 by traditional methods in the ancient Persian capital

first of all i have remind and insist that these are not my ideas ,they are just a collection that i gathered from different writers and researchers and also archaelogists

when we talk about a tribe or ethnic our thought goes to direction and imagination of a long far of live during the period of time (or long far life depending on when time)in a certain or specific land that in a long trip of thousands of historian years it is an admiring story or history that is telling us about the changes,sucess,loss,gain,victory,accomplishment,evolution,development,wars,competions that will be interested for us to study and read this story of that tribe .

What makes the different between the Aryan (caucasian)tribes(in second milliunium B.C) than all other ancient world tribes is that they were the only tribes that did not believe in Idols or Gods ,their Gods were the substances of nature manifestation (we have to mention that this is an evolution which started 14000 years ago )which was the time that cause of the whether and athmospher changes cause of a period of time not having enough grass and food cause of not enough rain and then a period of cold whether )the Aryans live became harder and not having enough food for all the Aryan tribes

The most important Gods of Aryans were Sun,Moon,the stars,Storm,lightning and in General they were naming them as Diva and Asura

the most famous Gods of Aryan were Varuna(oranous),Mitra(the light of Sun),Anahita(venus),Varahran(Mars),Khashateria(Mercury),Atur(light and heat) and some others .

Each of these Gods that made diffrent impression and effect of human's life they worship them in different ways.

mostly instead of S =H so asura changed to Ahura
