Lalesh. At least since the first great discoveries in Egypt at the beginning of the 20th century, archaeologists have caused a real stir among Western researchers about the ancient history of the Middle East. In the places where the first great civilizations in the history of mankind developed, archaeologists and scientists dig up and discover numerous remains to this day, which reveal old secrets and at the same time discover new ones. But this is happening not only in Egypt, but also in Mesoptamia, the former regions of ancient Babylon, among the Sumerians and Persians, the "cradle of civilization", excavations were going on at about the same time - when the German Eastern society came into existence. For the first time during the years of the great intoxication, the magazines of the Western world turned over and overshadowed each other with increasingly impressive finds that became the material for exotic myths and legends and that still fascinate people. But also the time of the great forgers began, who made a big profit from supposedly ancient relics, rolls of paper, stone tablets and the like.
It is the same with the Yazidis, who probably helped shape the culture in the Middle East over the past millennia and have largely preserved their customs and religion to this day.
Fossils often speak about the Yezidis and their culture, which, with elements of their mythological representations, give an idea of the ancient history of Mesopotamia. But only a few Western scientists were seriously interested in the Yezidis until the beginning of the 20th century. Her few reports were mostly summaries of statements by third parties, such as Muslims hostile to the Yazidis, who formed the image of "evil fans". Western missionaries, writers and archaeologists have stylized the myth of a "mysterious religion", which, in their opinion, has nothing to offer. Only the myth itself seemed attractive. However, after it was recognized that the Yazidis are not a small, insignificant community, but a people, interest in them increased. Astute antique dealers saw this as a chance to make a profit with the help of fake "holy books" of the Yazidis, which they actually falsified at great cost, but amateurishly in terms of content and sold at a great profit. It is unlikely that anyone noticed this, since before that the content of the Yazidi religion was little known. Only later did the deception become obvious, but the myth of these "holy books" continues to this day, especially among the Yazidis. And so to this day there is a rumor that old Yezidi relics can be found in museums in the UK, which are so secret that no one should see them. It is rumored that the queen brought a sacred statue of the Yazidis to England during one of her trips to the Middle and Far East. For decades, the question of whether there is a real essence in this narrative has been debated. Although scientists almost do not investigate this at all, because this statement seems too far-fetched, but many Yazidis are still firmly convinced that the queen brought an old Yazidi relic to the UK and kept it somewhere in the darkest basements of the museum. Indeed, in our study, we have met with direct evidence. But first to the background.

The Sacred Relic of Sanjak

Despite the fact that the Yazidis are now considered a marginalized people, they ruled large areas of Mesopotamia, and in some cases ruled for centuries. As a sign of their rule and the identity of the Yezidis, the Yezidi princes had so-called standards of Sanjaks (statuettes). The statuettes, made mainly of bronze or copper and partially gilded, depicted a peacock symbolizing the highest of the seven Yezidi archangels - Tavisi Melek. The Yezidis consider the peacock sacred. In total, there should have been seven of these holy figures of Senjak, each for one of the seven Yezidi archangels.
