ÓMIR SHEJIRESI (tree of life) is one of the most common symbols in the art of the Turkic peoples, a pedigree painting denoting the conditionally symbolic relationship of two worlds – the earthly and the heavenly. In the view of the Proto-Turks, the tree of life held the earth with its roots, and the sky supported the crown, the sacred bird Samruk lived in it, laying a gold egg as a symbol of the sun and light.
