'Arifi, Guy u Chawgan

This mystical poem by 'Arifi (d. circa 1449 CE) uses the concept of the polo ball and mallet as a metaphor for yearning for and being spurned by the beloved. In the paintings a dervish on the edge of a rocky horizon observes a princely polo player who is accompanied by an attendant carrying a mallet. The illustration is stylistically close to the work of 'Ali Asghar who worked in Qazvin in the 1570s and 1580s and joined the kitabkhana of Shah 'Abbas I upon his accession in 1587 CE.
