PIROUZ NĀHĀVANDI. Sassanian Zoroastrian Soldier, Hero and Legend. 

Assassin of Caliph Omar the Arab. 
( To be noted. 

We do not have the concept of Martyrs in Zoroastrianism. We only have Heros. There is no Glory in death. Only Glory in Life. Death is seen as the work of Ahriman and thus never glorified in the real Iranian culture )
( Art commissioned by Navid Beglarpour and painted by a talented Hungarian Artist. 

Thank you both )
