Right Side of a Double-page Illustrated Frontispiece Depicting King Solomon (Sulayman) Enthroned


Description Provenance Credit
Description The right side of this double-page illustrated frontispiece from Walters manuscript W.631 depicts King Solomon (Sulayman) enthroned. He is surrounded by the beasts over which he reigns, including divs and birds, mostly likely the hoopoe. Angels are above. At some point in the manuscript's history, figures' faces seem to have been purposefully erased.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters
