Khorshid Khanoom (Sun Lady)

The Khorshid Khanoom, or Sun Lady, is a traditional Persian motif. Almost like a divine figure, she is always enchanting, with short black hair curling around her face and bright red lips.

The background is in the style of a prayer rug; the sun and moon shine together; and the lotus flower at the bottom brings peace and good fortune.
