The current study is a field research conducted by systematic library research that introduces and restores the meaning of Pir-e Shaliar ritual ceremony in the cultural Landscape of Hawraman of Sarvabad in the province of Kurdistan in terms of semiotics. A significant matter in semiotics is the production of meaning and the meaningfulness of the world by the system of signs. Meaning is a concept expressed by a sign.
In this regard, the customs, traditions, and rituals, as Cultural signs/representation of human thoughts offer an interpretation of the world and the human's worldview through symbolic means, which are on the verge of oblivion by the dominance of virtual communication in the contemporary world, and their entire exploitation in various aspects of development is impossible.
Therefore, the main purpose of this study is to discover and articulate the implications of meaning in Pir-e Shaliar ceremony and the system of meaning derived from its symbolic signs /representations. So by that, steps have been taken to facilitate cultural exchanges and to provide development opportunities in the region.
The present study is based on a qualitative method in which data is collected through ethnographic and documentary methods, and analyzed through semiotic method.
The final section of this paper reveals that Pir-e Shaliar ceremony is a symbolic sign of the ethnic and collective beliefs of people in the cultural landscape of Hawraman, which opens a new level of implicit meanings to the audience. Also, this ceremony narrates an implicit scheme of a mystical tradition from the semiotic point of view, that objectifies the deism of the people of this land in a social cohesion in the Cultural Landscape of Hawraman.
