The Persian Astrologers

The Persian Astrologers

This elegant 7.5 inch x 11 inch watercolour painting on paper depicts an academic setting of five astrologers in the Zoroastrian tradition of Persia. According to extant Zoroastrian texts, astrology served as a key part of religious life. Ancient Zoroastrians, their priests, and the magi used it predominantly as a method of keeping time, both throughout history and day-by-day. The magi also predicted recurring events using astrology such as seasonal weather patterns and climatic changes which would be crucial for their communities to anticipate. Today, this tradition continues with some Zoroastrians using astrology as a divination tool, or to match-make men and women within a community. Indeed, no matter how it is viewed, astrology has become a hallmark of Persian history.

Exotic India is proud to present The Persian Astrologers as a single, exclusive item on our online store. These five astrologers sit attentively, discussing their studies with one another while reading through the esoteric papers of their time. Incense containers and teapots rest at their feet as the shadows grow upon the lush hill in the background, referencing the importance of the movement of the celestial bodies above them. A beautiful Persian Silk tree blossoms its delightful flowers along its branches for the astrologers, signifying the life and vitality which comes from their work while further back hints of dying, brittle trees suffer away from the enrichment of an educated mind. Order this beautiful painting now and have a piece of Persian Astrology resting in your home.
