Footnotes

  • Provenance
    The Shakerine Collection.

    The text here comes near the beginning of the Haft Paykar: the opening must have been on the previous page, the first of the double-page illuminations. The couplets in larger text in the panels above and below are from the Hadiqah of Sana'i. The leaves were presumably prepared for an album.
