Discover the captivating symbolism of the Dragon Peacock, an emblem associated with the illustrious Persian Sasanian Dynasty. The profound connection between Tawsi Melek and Mithra cannot be overlooked. However, the most prominent Persian counterpart of the Peacock Angel is the majestic Simurgh, an extraordinary creature with a dragon head and a magnificent peacock tail. Residing on Mount Elbourz, the sacred axis mundi that unifies Heaven and Earth, the Simurgh epitomizes the primal bird of paradise. This remarkable bronze sculpture beautifully captures the essence of the Dragon Peacock, with meticulous attention given to every intricate detail. The craftsmanship is truly commendable, showcasing fine lines delicately etched onto the dragon's skin. The exquisite peacock tail serves a dual purpose, doubling as a charming vase, candle holder, or even an incense burner. Meticulously crafted using the ancient "Lost Wax Method" and adorned with a brown patina finish for preservation, this sculpture is a testament to artistry. It stands upon a detailed base adorned with lettering, enhancing its visual allure. Made entirely by hand and composed of 100% bronze, this masterpiece bears the signature of the esteemed artist Perspolis. Immerse yourself in the allure of the Dragon Peacock, a timeless symbol of the Persian Sasanian Dynasty, and bring home a truly unique and awe-inspiring work of art.
