تصویری که می بینید،نمای است از پرسپولیس.در آیین زرتشی و ایران باستان این نماد و سمبل یعنی حمله شیر به گاو نر. شیر نماد خورشید و تابستان ، گاو نر نماد باران و فصل بارانی.و پیکره های تزیینی دیگر که در حرکتهای نمایشی پرسپولیس اشراف زاده ها و نمایندگانی از مردم که برای امپراطوری ایران هدیه هایی برای پادشاه ایرانی (پارسی) در طی جشن های نوروز می آوردند.در آیین زرتشتی شیر نماد نور و نور نماد خورشید و یا آتش مقدس است و خورشید نماد خداوند بزرگ است.گاو نر نماد اعتدال بهاری و بلند کردن روزها می باشد.بدین گونه یک نماد از پیروزی نور بر روی تاریکی و گرمی بر روی سردی زمستان است.(این تصویر نمونه از طرز تفکر ایرانیان باستان را به نمایش گذاشته است).

Norooz is the Iranian New Year, which is celebrated each year at the beginning of spring, on March 21st. It is the most important holiday in the Zoroastrian calendar and brings a wealth of symbolism, history, myth and joyous festivities. There are many layers of meaning to Norooz: astronomical, mythical, historical and spiritual. The word Norooz, means “New Day”, and the primal origin of the festivities lies in the universal rhythms of the earth and nature. The earth, in its movement on an elliptical path around the sun experiences four important events: Winter Solstice (longest night of the year), Summer Solstice (longest day of the year), and the two equinoxes (when day and night are equal in length). In Northern Hemisphere, when the earth moves from the winter solstice toward the summer solstice, in the middle of the way, it faces the spring equinox.

At the beginning of the spring when the earth wants to wake up from its winter sleep, and change from snow and coldness to color and warmth, the spring equinox occurs. A complete turn of the earth around itself makes up a day. Along its elliptical path around the sun, the earth completes a turn in 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds making up a complete year. In four years those additional hours make up a complete day and then we have a leap year, which is one day longer than normal years.
Historically the New Year celebration goes back to the times of the legendary king of Persia, Jamshid, who is said to have introduced the solar reckoning into the Persian calendar, and also determined the time when the sun enters the constellation of Aries from Pisces constellation, as the beginning of the year.
