Royal Hunting Scene with Illuminated Carpet Page

These are opening folios of a now lost manuscript that was probably started in Timurid Herat around 1470. Based on the language used in the dedicatory medallion and the style of the paintings, it is likely that this manuscript was completed by a Shaybanid workshop.
