This depiction of Melek Taus shows his tail feather eyes extending out
in a solar symbol because of the number of eyes (twelve). The roots of
the eyes of the feathers are seven in number, and denote the planets
of the ancients, which are numbered from the supernal triad - the
three feathers springing from the birds head. dividing the image in
half, is the Moon, representing opposites, while He stands on the
Earth symbol as a foot stool. The Sumerian symbol to the left, the
star, represents a god. The rest of it says something like, "created
in light and darkness" or something of that nature.

You're forgetting these are Iraqi Kurds. That word is probably not in
their original vocabulary from "4,000 years ago, when they started
this religion" as one of your sources says(*snicker*). It's probably a
label that an outside culture gave their deity. Probably somewhere
from a short distance west? Speaking of origins, Most scholars agree
that the Yezidi are an evolution of Zoroastrianism and Mithraism. Want
sources? Go find them, there's plenty of material out there. Try not
to use keywords like "Lord Lucifer" in the search though...just a tip.

"fire as light and fire and burn").
