The Celestial Rooster - "In the Name of God the Glorious, The Most Glorious One!"
"Bismi'lláh'il'Bahiyy'el Abhá"

You can see a copy of the original by Mishkín-Qalam in 'The Bahá'í World' vol. XV 1968-1973, the second bookplate in the front. (SEE explaination below). Mine is about 16" x 21", I've heard that his is hanging on a wall in the Holy Land and stands 4 to 5 feet tall. (The page I was copying from is all wrinkled and it showed. When you get the opportunity, treat yourself to a peak at the real one. You'll be glad you did!!

 

The Celestial Rooster

 

This, Bird / Rooster / Cockerel, is also "Bismi'lláh'il'Bahiyy'el Abhá". Together, the lower beak, the belly and right foot, as we look at it read "Bism". Then, inside the body of the bird on can see, "Alláh'el" and "Bahiyy". And in the tail, "Abhá". Finally we see the right foot holding two pages, which are in the original Arabic. Contained therein is the famous advise of Bahá'u'lláh, from Gleanings CXXX page 285.
