This paper also examines the scope that has lead to influence the type of EAGLEs shape in other ancient civilizations such as Greece, Rome and Egypt. Drawing the MOTIF of EAGLE on the old works was based on Persian religious routines and beliefs and keyhan cognitiion and their cosmos knowledge which had profound contextual meaning.As a result art and craft followed this notion to create some masterpieces with many shapes of this swift-winged bird to show the true meaning of it.
