Zoroastrianism - An Ancient Religion - AM Musings
 
Picture
Zoroastrian Symbol
The image at the top is a symbol of Zoroastrian Religion, one of the oldest in the world that dates from about 3,500 years ago originating in Persia (Iran).  I saw it in a doorway on Fillmore Street near Union recently and because of my studies at the Asian Art Museum, I  immediately recognized it.  It has the same Zoroastrian symbol.   The silver bowl below is a recent acquisition by the museum and dates from the 19th century and was commissioned in India and made by Burmese artisans. 

I wondered if there was a Zorastrian organization here on Fillmore, but there wasn't any identification other than the symbol.
