    Safavid Persian soldiers in illustrations from the Shahnama of Shah Tahmasp, 1522-1540
    From the portion of the manuscript in the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Tehran.
    Manuchihr leads his army to fight Salm and Tur
    Siyavush defeats Garsivaz
    Farud and Tukhvara view the Iranians from a mountain top
    Farud shoots Tus' horse from under him
    Kamus fights Giv and Tus
    Rustam captures and kills Kamus
    Rustam overturns Chingish by seizing the tail of his horse
    Detail of horse from Rustam kills Gahar Gahani
    Rustam fights Kafur the Cannibal
    Kay Khusrau kills Shida
    Iskandar kills the Fur of Hind
    Bahram Chubina kills the fleeing Sava Shah

    This manuscript of the Shah-nameh is the most sumptuous one ever produced. Containing scores of paintings where other sixteenth-century Shah-nameh manuscripts contain a dozen, the Houghton Shah-nameh (identified by the name of its owner, Arthur A. Houghton, Jr.) is thought to have been commissioned about 1522 by Shah Isma'il, the founder of the Safavid dynasty, as a present for his son, Prince Tahmasp.
