Hunting was a key pastime for nobles and kings of Iran at least as early as the eighth century BCE. In this double-page painting a frenzied group of nobles display their skill in the hunt as they dispatch a variety of prey while galloping on steeds and wielding a range of weapons. The scene, at times perilous for the hunter as well as the hunted, is set within a lyrical Persian landscape with typical golden skies, pastel grounds, and flowing streams.
