Ancient Persia

"Whenever you can, act as a liberator. Freedom, dignity, wealth — these three together constitute the greatest happiness of humanity. If you bequeath all three to your people, their love for you will never die." Cyrus The Great

'Homa' is my first edition of the depiction of ancient Persia in its symbols. 
From the culture, I picked and embedded Homa (a prominent figure in Persian mythology, implying bliss and fortune), then added Ahura Mazda (the creator of the universe in Zarathustra), the king Cyrus as it is carved in a temple in Apadana, Lotus flower that believed to have magical power in ancient Persia, twin spirits Spenta Mainyu and Angra Mainyu (Ahriman)—the former beneficent, choosing truth, light, and life; and the latter destructive, choosing deceit, darkness, and death, Arash the archer, and of course pomegranate, Persian's favorite fruit.

'Zamin'  (means the Earth in Farsi) is my second design of ancient Persia. 
I have borrowed several elements from 'Homa', and in addition, few Persians were added to the design. As before several fonts from Sanscrite and Pahlavi (old Persian language) have been included in this design.
