Antique Persian Hand-Wrought Copper Plate

This is a heavier gage copper plate.

Zoroastrianism is one of the world’s oldest monotheistic religions, having originated in ancient Persia. It contains both monotheistic and dualistic elements, and many scholars believe Zoroastrianism influenced the belief systems of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Zoroastrian theology includes, foremost, the importance of following the “Threefold Path of Asha” revolving around good thoughts, good words, and good deeds. There is also a heavy emphasis on spreading happiness, mostly through charity, and respecting the spiritual equality and duty of both men and women.
