Moʿin Moṣavver | Manuscripts | Shahnama of Ferdowsi

Manuscript C, folio 232r

Welch has suggested that this painting is a later addition, probably added when the volume was rebound in India in the 19th century. Welch may very well be correct. The style is far removed from that of Moʿin Moṣavver.

There is no inscription or date accompanying the painting.

Painting references:
Welch, AK4_1978, p.90, Ms.22, folio 232r (not ill.).
