Fighting Wrestles, manuscript of the Golestan of Saadi, XVIth century, Bukhara

1000 pieces puzzles, assembled puzzle : 68 X 48 cm.


This luxurious copy of the Golestan was completed by the calligrapher Mir Ali Al-Kateb (under the direction of Soltan Mirak Monshi) in ketabkhâneh Sultan Mozzafar ad-Din in July 1543 in Bukhara. Dated 1554, eleven years later, this miniature illustrates the history of the old wrestler who terraces effortlessly his young and presumptuous rival, who is also his disciple. The character who stands in the center of the image could be Chaybanide Yar-Mohammed, sultan of Bukhara, if we believe the date on the lintel of the door open to the garden. On a gold background which opposes the blue sky, two flowering trees with bent branches and a tree with yellow and orange foliage symbolize a nature that the artist invites us to contemplate, an essential element of art and mythical paradise .
