Artwork Description

Simurgh (Persian: سیمرغ), also spelled simorgh, simurg or simoorg, also known as Angha, is the modern Persian name for a fabulous, benevolent, mythical flying creature.
The simurgh is depicted in Iranian art as a winged creature in the shape of a bird, gigantic enough to carry off an elephant or a whale. It appears as a kind of peacock with the head of a dog and the claws of a lion
