Persian Manuscripts Collection Of Three Pages, With Hunting And Battle Scenes:
Persian manuscripts collection of three beautiful pages with original art. The size is 7” x 10 ½” in fair condition with significant wear, holds, creases, marks, rips and others signs of wear. Each page is written on both sides with artistic lettering, and an original painting is on one side. All the artworks appear to show the same warrior, but I’m not certain. Each artwork is approximately 3" x 6 1/2". The colors are vibrant, although some of the paint has wore off. I originally bought these on about ten to fifteen years ago.
The first painting shows a battle scene with four warriors. One man has cut off the arm of another man, and you can see the wounded man bleeding as his severed hand still holds the sword. This page has some kind of white paper patch on the back.
The second painting shows a hunting scene on horseback. Two men are chasing different kinds of horned animals with spear and sword. One deer is attacking a horse by biting its leg.
The third painting shows another hunting scene, where one man on horseback chases deer with his sword, and another man battles a tiger hand to hand. While the tiger bites his arm, he cuts the tiger with his dagger. Quite an action scene!
When you buy these, I will carefully pack them. This is a wonderful collection from a time far away, but maybe not as far as we think.
