Abstract: 
Oral folk tales and religious stories of each nation, through symbolism, carry some social and cultural elements of that nation so that they can support the persistence of the people’s national identity. The “Sofreh-ye Vahmaru” story belongs to people who live in Khoramshah region in Yazd and reflects the wishes, desires, and cultural traditions of this small group. In parallel to this story, there are some traditional rituals in the region such as votive tables. The hero of this tale is a prince charming who is under a spell and has been changed into a white snake. His spell breaks only when he gets married and swears his wife to secrecy and silence for seven years. This folk tale has strong symbolic layers in unity with traditional ancient legends in Persian culture and literature. This article studies the symbolic layers which are hidden deep in this story.
