Based test on a poem written around 1200 by the Sufi poet Farid ud-Din Attar and based on the myth and legend of Simurgh, a benevolent mythical bird, equated to the Phoenix.

 Stories of Simurgh can be found in Shahnameh, in Sufi Poetry and Kurdish Folklore. Simurgh is depicted in Iranian art as a winged creature in the shape of a bird, but gigantic enough to carry off an elephant or a whale.



Here, Master Farshchian depicts the story of the Simorgh rising from the ashes and sacrificing herself as she burns while her egg brings new life. The legend says that the phoenix only laid one egg all of her life and she burned as her young took her place.
