This model is based on the ruins of Persepolis.
The Farohar or faravahar is both an emblem of the Zoroastrian religion and of Persian identity. Faravahar means “to choose.” The Faravahar once represented the Assyrian sun god Shamash, and may have represented the corona of a solar eclipse. In the modern Zoroastrian faith, it represents the human soul. The faravahar has several parts, which are given particular meaning by modern Zoroastrians: A winged disk- the three layers of feathers represent the three pillars of the Zoroastrian faith: good words, good thoughts, good deeds. The ring represents eternity. Two streamers, representing the duality of good and evil- left and right, respectively. The head of a man, facing left-representing the prophet Zoroaster, and the choice to live a morally upright life.
