Khamsa of Nizami
This page from a magnificently illuminated manuscript, the Khamsa or "five poems" of Nizami Ganjavi, a 12th century Persian poet, which was originally created for the Mughal Emperor Akbar in the early 1590s. The image shows Khusrau and Shirin listening to stories told by Shirin's maidens, c. 1539-1543. In the exquisite border foxes, rabbits and a deer can be seen.
