Public Notes
Twelve illustrations of a dispersed 15th-century Shahnama produced in the period of the Indian Sultanate. All paintings are mounted as album leaves without text. Three of them include a scene title (20.120.239, 20.120.246, 20.120.249).
Project Notes
Are there texts on the back, that might allow some identifications apart from thse that seem obvious from the iconography?

Still need dimensions to be recovered for many of them.
