Safavid Book Cover

Leather Binding from a Safavid Dynasty Manuscript, Islamic Art, Detroit Institute of Arts

Peacock dish. Turkey, “Iznik”, c. 1550. This dish offers the viewer a complex vegetal composition combining elements from the saz repertoire – long serrated leaves, composite flowers and buds – with a more naturalistic style of plant motif – artichoke stems in bloom, flowers with swirling petals, tulips, and perhaps delicate violets. In the center is an errant peacock, lost in this fantastic garden.
