Before the photograph was taken, the girl dried her tears and the blood from the cut on her lip. To tell you the truth, I felt as if I was being hit myself but I couldn't interfere. It would have been fatal for me. You could never say anything." Wilhelm Brasse.
"This apparently imaginary fern is set against a gold background filled with ink drawings of various plants and animals, including the mythical simurgh (phoenix-like bird). The border, containing twelve verses of ˓Urfī's poetry, also includes busts of youths, female-faced suns, and animals by the hand responsible for the ink drawings surrounding the fern. The mount itself is marbled paper, an innovation connected with the court of Sulṭān Ḥusain (d.1506) in Herat." From the Read Persian Album.
