Shown together for the first time are several pages from the Majma’ al-Tawarikh (Assembly of Histories), an early 15th-century account of world history since the time of Adam that was composed at the Timurid court in Herat, Afghanistan.

Oft-Told Tales: Narrative Images from India and Iran
Oft-Told Tales explores the spatial effects and bright colors used to heighten the drama and emotion of narratives illustrated in the famed 11th-century Iranian Shahnama (Book of Kings) as well as in Indic classics, such as the Bhagavata Purana (History of the Lord) and the Gita Govinda (Song of Govinda).
