Conference of the Birds

Shaykh Faridduddin Attar's timeless allegory of the birds that go on a journey has been retold countless times since it was first written in the 12th century. The journey represents the path towards God and the birds encounter seven obstacles or 'valleys' that they have to overcome to attain their goal.
