W.707, Single leaf of a falconer on horseback
This is an Ottoman Turkish colored drawing of a falconer on horseback produced in the eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE. The central work is framed by two additional drawings: a lion in the upper register and a lion killing a deer in the lower register. Both reference earlier Persian compositions. The verses above are written in small nastaʿlīq script, the first two in Persian and the third in Ottoman Turkish. The border is of blue-tinted paper.
