Caption

Gushtasp kills the 'wolf', here represented as a sort of buffalo-rhinoceros. Unusual treatment: the monster lies on its back and the hero runs his lance into its rectum. Three armoured spectators and many animals in the luxuriant landscape. Image taken from Shahnama of Firdawsi, with 39 miniatures. Opaque watercolour. Safavid, or Isfahan style. Originally published in 1614.
