Religious images can be considered as the transmitters of social and cultural concepts, but unfortunately they
are usually presented theough surface and general interpretatipns. Accordingly, in this research, we have tried to
investigate the components and structure of the image of the Lord’s throne carriers in the book of the Wonders.
These motifs are seen in Islamic texts as the carriers of the throne of God and in the astronomical texts as the constellation
of the region.
The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between colors of images in the symbolic system of astronomy
and religions. Accordingly, the researcher sought to investigate the effect of astronomical beliefs on the color
of the four major constellations of the region on religious imagery as one of the manifestations of people’s beliefs
in different periods of minor world.
Since there was a need for interdisciplinary comparative studies between the astronomy and the field of religions,
the iconography Varburg-Panovsky method was selected as the reaerch method of this research.
Finally, the researcher concluded that: The colors of the images of the carriers of the Throne of God in the book
of Wonders are perfectly consistent with the colors of the main constellations of the region and their associated
elements. Moreover, the use of four colors of black, yellow, gold (white) and red for the image of the carriers of
the throne of God in the Qazvin Wonders Book illustrates the effects of astronomical beliefs of the four major
constellations of the region and its associated elements of the great universe on the beliefs related to the carriers of
the God throne in religions as the manifestations of the beliefs of the people as a minor world.
