Public Notes
Most probably a Mughal copy of 1550s of the Dust Muhammad painting in the Houghton Shahnama, with several variations. Quite different to that in the Sadruddin Agha Khan collection.

The birds in colour inserted in the gold marginal drawings are typical of the Jahangir album. (Sheila Canby)
