    About

    Manuscript page from the epic Shahnameh (Book of Kings) by the Persian poet Ferdowsi. The epic tells the story of Persia. The great warrior Rustam and his faithful red horse Rakhsh were on a long journey to rescue a king, the shah Kay Kavus, held captive by a demon in a distant country. Rustam set out across the dangerous Providence of Mazanderan. They stopped to rest in a dangerous forest, not realizing that they had camped at a lion's lair. As the hero slept, the lion returned and attacked Rakhsh. The horse and the lion struggled fiercely together, until Rakhsh managed to trample his attacker to death. In this print, both lion and horse are tangled in fight below a sleeping Rustam. Detailed illustration of foliage surrounds both Rustam and animals. The artist has depicted the forest very effectively- many dangers lurk among the dense landscape and an assortment of strange faces loom out of the rocks, including the faces of a lion and a horse, echoing Rakhsh and his adversary. This painting has been attributed to the Persian painter Sultan Muhammad, a skilled master at the atelier of the Aqqoyunlu Turklmans in Tabriz. This is an excellent example of his work before he adapted his painting to the new Safavid style.
