Sufficiency in the conventional sense of symbols has prevented them from defining new concepts. On the other hand, the foundation of factors that shape the patterns leads to the decipherment and production of a new meaning. The role of the peacock has always been a symbol of pride, glory, and beauty. However, understanding the visual difference between the twelfth-century peacock motif carpet and the previous specimens doubled the need to reproduce the new meaning. Auxiliary text was needed to achieve this goal. With such an approach, Sheikh Shahab al-Din Suhrawardi's " Loghat-e-Moran seems appropriate. It's as if our Loghat-e-Moran for a text was an image of an altar rug peacock in the Metropolitan Museum, and as a result it was read accordingly. Understanding the meaning of the peacock motif based on the thematic application of the carpet and the above treatise is the main purpose of this article. The result shows that the peacock, in addition to its common meanings, was a symbol of longing and sorrow. This research is based on the qualitative method and developed and described based on the motif of the altar peacock carpet in the meaningful context of the text Loghat-e-Moran by Sheikh Ishraq. In terms of classification, it is descriptive and analytical study.
