A Father's Dream

Inspiration
When Baha'u'llah was still a child, His father dreamed a dream. Baha'u'llah appeared to him swimming in a vast limitless ocean. His body shone upon the waters with a radiance that illumined the sea. Around His head, which could distinctly be seen above the waters, there radiated, in all directions, His long, jet-black locks, floating in great profusion above the waves. As he dreamed, a multitude of fishes gathered round Him, each holding fast to the extremity of one hair. Fascinated by the effulgence of His face, they followed Him in whatever direction He swam. Great as was their number, and however firmly they clung to His locks, not one single hair seemed to have been detached from His head, nor did the least injury affect His person. Free and unrestrained, He moved above the waters and they all followed Him.
(Nabil 3 Call to Remembrance, Page 6)
Symbolism
The multiple hues of the blue glass symbolize water, the white silver-lined matte beads are "air bubbles". The fish come straight from the dream of Mirza Buzurg. The two crystals signify the Bab and Baha'u'llah as twin Manifestations. The green bead symbolizes the Bab as a siyyid descendant of the Prophet Mohammed. The nine-pointed star represents the Baha'i Era.
