At the end, Rostam slays Div-e Sefid and uses his heart and blood to cure the blindness of the king and the captured Persian heroes. Rostam also takes the Div's head as a helmet and is often pictured wearing it.A snakes surounds the shield in spiral figures i did not find the symbolic of snake in persian mythology if anyone can tell me i would greatly appreciate intricate work of silver incrustationin iron a great piece
