دخمه‎.
REMEMBERING THE DEAD.
Wish you a serene All Hallow's Eve celebration. HUGS
*****************************************
A Dakhma (Persian: دخمه‎), also known as "Tower of Silence" in English, is a circular, raised structure used by Zoroastrians for exposure of the dead, particularly to scavenging birds for the purposes of excarnation.

The common dakhma or dokhma (from Middle Persian dakhmag) originally denoted any place for the dead.
Similarly, in the medieval texts of Zoroastrian tradition, the word astodan appears, but today that word denotes an ossuary. In the Iranian provinces of Yazd and Kerman, the technical term is deme or dema.

Annemarie, a very transcendent image!! I love that within the almost monochromatic scene there is such a profound contrast between foreground and background elements. My FAV. I really appreciate the descriptive text that you provide, I read Religion for one of my degrees at University (ages ago of course :) and made a study of the Zoroastrian religion. It is wonderful to see the images that you have made. They have helped bring the abstract to life for me!!! Warm regards, Michael
