ceramic letter S س
The letter “S” in the Persian alphabet is written as “س,” and it is pronounced as “sin.” In the Haft-Seen table setting, which is a traditional part of the Persian New Year celebration, known as Nowruz, the letter “sin” is used to represent the number seven. The Haft-Seen table is a special arrangement of items that symbolize different aspects of life and the natural world, and it typically includes seven items that begin with the letter “sin.” These items include:
Sib: apples, which represent beauty and health
Sir: garlic, which represents health
Somaq: sumac, which represents the color of sunrise
Senjed: dried fruit of the oleaster tree, which represents love
Seer: coins, which represent wealth
Serkeh: vinegar, which represents age and patience
Sabzeh: wheat or lentil sprouts, which represent new beginnings
Ceramic letters “س” could be used as decorative items in the Haft-Seen table setting, or they could be used in other contexts as well.
