A Zoroastrian Symbol

The illustration on this handout is the Faravahar, a symbol of Zoroastrian faith. With the example of the Faravahar in mind, create, on a separate sheet of paper, a symbol that represents your own religious faith or personal understanding of human nature and destiny. You may incorporate symbols from your religious tradition, or you may create something completely original. Use any materials you wish: markers, pens, pencils, paint, construction paper, glue, scissors, magazines, and so on. Then write a brief description of your symbol and of the meaning behind each of its elements. Present your symbol to a classmate and explain the intention be- hind it. Then listen to your classmate’s explanation of her or his symbol.
