his painting is inspired by Zoroastrian mythology. Tishtrya is a Zoroastrian Rain God who struggles against the drought-bringing demon Apaosha. He is in the form of a pure white horse with Apaosha in the form of a black horse. Apaosha soon gains the upper hand over Tishtrya, who was weakened from the lack of sufficient prayers and sacrifices from humankind. The Creator Ahura Mazda, offers a sacrifice to Tishtrya which enables him to overcome Apaosha, and his rains were able to flow to the parched fields and pastures unabated by drought.
