"Fanoos" is the most traditional form of lamp in our beloved motherland. The word "Fanous" (Fanos, Phanos and Fanoos in different middle eastern dialects) is a term of Greek origin translated to "candle". It means 'light' or 'lantern'. It was historically used in its meaning of "the light of the world," and is a symbol of hope, as in "light in the darkness". Traditionally "Fanoos", is favored in Persian culture as a symbol of light, simplicity and beauty. It is becoming much more popular these days as a symbol of our ancient culture.
