In Persian mythology, the Huma bird, also known as the “bird of paradise” is a bird of great compassion. It is said to have both male and female natures in one body and represents the union between earth and sky. Similar to the Egyptian phoenix, it consumes itself by fire every few hundred years so it may rise anew from the ashes. It spends its entire life on the wing, only coming to the ground to be reborn. Great blessings, good fortunes and independence come to those on whom the Huma’s shadow falls.
