Farohar Islands & Egyptian Connection
Like Dubai building the Palms shaped islands in the Persian Gulf, Iran is going to build a new island near Bushehr in Persian Gulf, based on the “national symbol” of Fravahr. This will cover an area of 6,200,000 square meter.
I ask my self a FRAVAHR a NATIONAL SYMBOL of Iran ? Isn’t that a great recognition of a non-Islamic something.
Talking of the Farohar, last December when visiting some of the museums of London & Paris undertaken to initiate my 20 years old grandson about of our heritage, we came across Farohar shaped figures on the caskets of the Egyptian mummies. Any information on the possible connection? Here are the pics.
