BAHRAM GUR FIGHTS IN THE PRESENCE OF SHINGIL, Firdawsi. Shah-nama


The author of this miniature depicts the parable by Saadi about the fight of Bakhram Gur. Flatness and levels of the composition go match with contrast colouring. It is personal rendering of Tsars book. The spectators and competitors have some Indian elements in wear and faces.
