Happy Nowruz to you too manbil777

These are the elements of nowruz and their meanings that i found from the internet:

Sabzeh or sprouts, usually wheat or lentil representing rebirth.
Samanu is a pudding in which common wheat sprouts are transformed and given new life as a sweet, creamy pudding and represents the ultimate sophistication of Persian cooking.
Seeb means apple and represents health and beauty.
Senjed the sweet, dry fruit of the Lotus tree, represents love. It has been said that when lotus tree is in full bloom, its fragrance and its fruit make people fall in love and become oblivious to all else.
Seer which is garlic in Persian, represents medicine.
Somaq sumac berries, represent the color of sunrise; with the appearance of the sun Good conquers Evil.
Serkeh or vinegar, represents age and patience.

I found some pictures of clothing from ancient Persia, presumably from the Achaemenid period but I don't know how to place them in the post. If someone gives me instructions I will add them to the thread. Otherwise, if you go to the link, you'll find them clearly labeled but mixed in with Babylonian and Assyrian sketches.

What you do is... tkae the pic's URL and put it in between this code [IMG][/IMG]... Also some websites do not allow you to host off their site so you will have to take the pic and host it elsewhere such as www.imageshack.us where you cal also host the images using the origional url

For example:

[IMG] http://www.siue.edu/COSTUMES/images/PLATE3CX.JPG [/IMG]

[IMG] http://img440.imageshack.us/img440/7456/plate2bxqd3.jpg [/IMG]

(without the spaces between the code and url) Try it yourself

Yeah they look Achaemenid to me

Thanks for the instructions and starting this thread, Shugs. Those are wonderful pictures you provided.

Here are pictures of Achaemenid clothing.

I wonder about the men's clothes. The noblemen seem to wear robes; the soldiers, robes with leggings, or tunics with leggings. Do you think the soldiers' robes are wrap-around things that separate when they ride or run? You would think that the active man would be inhibited by long skirts.

The first noble looks like his "drapery" might be wrapped around each leg separately. Isn't it sweet the way he's holding hands and looking at his companion?

So here's a picture of a woman in traditional dress riding a horse. It looks to me that her skirt is so full that she can straddle the horse in it and still be modest. Is that how it appears to others or is she wearing some kind of robe over pantaloons?

^Yeah, my guess is that's she's wearing some sort of trousers beneath.
