Zoroastrianism - An Ancient Religion
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.
